Fantastic Friday

This morning the students worked on a practice PARCC activity to refresh their memories as to the format and tools of this assessment.  Then they went to music with Ms. Thomson.  When they returned, we watched the morning announcements.

After that, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  Next, we completed a multi-step word problem warm up and began our rotations.

During the small groups rotation, we used an area model and partial products to solve multiplication equations involving two 2-digit numbers, neither of which were multiples of ten.  During math with a partner, the students played a card game called, "Advanced Multiplication Number Battle", to practice multiplying multi-digit numbers.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the students watched a Khan Academy lesson demonstrating how to solve a multiplication problem with two 2-digit numbers.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When we returned to class, we went over the answers to our weekly puzzles and spent some time discussing the PARCC testing.

After that, the children worked on completing their odes while I met with a few students to do the April informal reading assessment.

We ended the day with a South African cultural arts assembly.
