Terrific Tuesday

This morning, before the announcements, the students worked on their keyboarding skills.  Then, we continued reading Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.  As we read we practiced identifying the point of view and using similes and metaphors to interpret the text.

Next we switched for math and took a G\o Noodle brain break.  Then we did a PARCC type question for a warm up and reviewed last night's homework.  After that we began our rotations.

During the small group instruction we practiced identifying factor pairs and their products, when multiplying a whole number by a fraction.  During math with a partner, the students played the card game, "Multiplication Number Battle", to increase fluency with the multiplication basic facts.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the students watched a Learn Zillion lesson about multiplying whole numbers by fractions and solved 2 problems in their math journal.  If they had extra time, they practiced identifying equivalent fractions using Triplets.

For HOMEWORK the students need to complete the worksheet we began in class.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.   Then they went to PE with Mr. Smith.

When we returned to class, we began our literacy block.  First the students worked on their new WTW word sort.  Then, the students watched a video and looked at a Google Slide presentation about 3 different types of note taking.  Then they chose a note taking method to use as they read about the various types of ad techniques.

Next, we took a Go Noodle brain break and I reviewed the criteria for success for the Simile/Metaphor Vocabulary formative.  Then the children completed the formative and continued working on their WTW sort and note taking activity.

HOMEWORK is posted on GC - Holman's Homework.
