Take Your Child to Work Day

Sooooooo...out of a class of 29 students, we only had 10 in class today.  This created an interesting scenario.  We had to find constructive activities to further our knowledge without introducing any new skills or strategies.

The day began as typical Thursdays do.  The students tried to figure out our weekly puzzles and then worked on a WTW practice activity.

After that, we played Kahoot to learn more about the branches of government.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  After that, we went over last night's homework.  Then, we did modified rotations.

First, all students spent 15 minutes using Xtra Math to increase their basic fact fluency.  Second, we all worked together to use an area model to solve 2-digit by 2-digit multiplication problems WITHOUT multiples of ten.  Finally, we played Kahoot to review fourth grade math skills.

After math, the children enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When we returned to class, we began our literacy block.  While I tested some of the students for our April informal reading assessments, the children revised, printed, and illustrated their odes.  Those who completed their odes worked on their WTW practice activities and their branches of government Google Slides presentations.

NO HOMEWORK tonight!
NO math formative, for my class, tomorrow!
