Terrific Tuesday

This morning students who had not completed the rough draft for their memoir worked on that, while others practiced their keyboarding skills using Typing Club.  Then, after the announcements, we began our science lesson.

Today the students worked on a culminating project, either a poster or Google Slides presentation, to show what they know about matter.  Using resources provided in GC - Science, the children chose a way to identify and explain the 3 state of matter.  While they worked, I met with small groups to conference with them on their memoir rough drafts.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  After that, we did a warm up involving money and went over last night's homework.  Then we began our rotations.

During the small group lesson we worked on reading,writing, adding, and subtracting decimals and fractions.  During math with a partner, the students chose between playing Go Fish or Memory Matching using decimal cards.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the children watched a Khan Academy lesson about converting tenths to hundredths, and then completed 2 practice activities.  Those who had time left over used the site Soccer Math to practice adding decimals.

For HOMEWORK the students need to complete a worksheet called, "Subtracting Decimals".

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

When we returned to class, we focused on writing our memoirs.  First, I reviewed a new resource added to their GC-Writing pages.  It is a Google Slides checklist of criteria and examples for the students to use before completing their final draft.  Then we reviewed the grading rubric I will be using.

After that, the children used the checklist and rubric to revise their writing as they typed their final draft into a Google Doc.  I continued to work with small groups of students helping them edit and revise their writing.

HOMEWORK is posted on GC-Holman's Homework.
