Wonderful Wednesday - Delayed Start

Well, we FINALLY got a snow day and a two hour delay!  :-)  It was nice to have a wintery blast.

When the students arrived today, they got to choose between working on their keyboarding skills or working on their Writing Wednesday stories.  After the announcements we had a very short period of time to begin learning about how and why the colony of St. Mary's was established.

Then, the students ate lunch at 11:40.

When they returned to class we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  Since we had a shortened math block, we did a whole group math lesson.  Our lesson revolved around using diagrams and equations to represent and solve work problems involving the multiplication of fractions.  Students need to complete problems C and D for HOMEWORK.

After math, we began our literacy block.  We shifted back to non-fiction text and began identifying how we can determine the meaning of domain specific vocabulary using our background knowledge and images.

Next, the students had art with Mr. Cosgrove.

After art, we continued determining the meaning of domain specific words.  Then the students worked on the culminating project for Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, identifying a turning point, favorite part/character, simile/metaphor, and theme for the novel.

HOMEWORK is posted on GC - Holman's Homework.
