### Wonderful Wednesday

This morning we focused on being respectful, since this has become a school wide issue.  So, prior to the announcements, each students completed a chart identifying what respect looks like on the bus, in the hallway, in the classroom, in the bathroom, in the cafeteria, and at recess.  Then we had our weekly class meeting.

First, we each shared what we think it means to be respectful.  Then we created a chart of class expectations for demonstrating respect in the areas listed above.  Finally, we discussed appropriate consequences for failing to be respectful.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  Then we did a warm up  identifying fractions equal to 0, 1/2, and 1, with different denominators, and reviewed last night's homework.  Finally, we began our rotations.

During the small group instruction, we began plotting data on a line plot.  The lesson focused on reviewing  how to create line plots and identifying fractions equivalent to eighths.  During math with a partner, the children played a matching memory game where they needed to find two fractions whose sum was a target fraction.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the children practiced adding mixed numbers, and creating and interpreting line plots, using online sites linked to GC-Math.

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

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When they returned to class, we continued reading, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.  As we read, we identified examples of inferences we made from the text, as well as, similes and metaphors.

Then, the students had art with Mr. Cosgrove.

After art, we practiced identifying and correcting run-on sentences in sample persuasive essays.  Then the children worked on their own writing pieces.  Today they focused on completing their drafts and identifying and correcting run-on sentences.

HOMEWORK, as always, is posted on GC - Holman's Homework.
