Marvelous Monday

This morning the students worked on a language review activity.  After the announcement we went over the correct answers and read a few more pages of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.  Then Ms. Snyder came in and did a lesson about respect.  After she left, we read a few more pages of the novel.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  After that, we did a fraction based warm up.  Then, the children took a county mandated assessment task.  These have been graded and returned to students.

After math, the children enjoyed lunch and indoor recess.

Following recess we began our literacy block.  While I attended an in-house meeting, the students completed the idiom activity and media message scavenger hunt from Friday.  Then, those who needed more time, finished taking notes on the 12 advertising techniques.  After that, the children used several links to locate a current event article that interested them.  Then they summarized the information in the article, defined three news words and used them in sentences, and shared the main idea with a partner.

When I returned, we finished reading Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.  Then the students began working on a culminating project, creating a kite which depicts the theme, a turning point, a simile or metaphor, and a favorite character or part.
