Fabulous Friday

This morning, since it is Free Choice Friday, the students chose their own morning work.  Then they went to music.  Ms. Thomson was absent, so they had a substitute.  When they returned to class we watched the morning announcements and reviewed the answers to this week's puzzles.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  After that, we reviewed last night's homework.  Then, the children took the formative for weeks 2 and 3.  These have been scored and returned to the students.  Look for them in home folders tonight.

After the quiz, we reviewed the correct answers and did a Kahoot to review math skills in preparation for the math PARCC.

Then, the children enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When they returned to class, we began our literacy block.  First, I modeled writing a summary for chapter 14.  After that, the children copied my response under the one they wrote yesterday, or last night for homework.  Then, the children analyzed the two answers noticing what they did well and where they need to improve.

Next, we read, and discussed, chapter 15, the final chapter in Shiloh.  Then, the children got a sticky note and listed the 5 most important events in the story.  After sharing out their thoughts, we orally rehearsed a summary of the book and possible themes.

Finally, while some students went to instrumental band, the rest of us worked on finishing the K-W-H chart for our Genius Hour project, and spent time learning how to upload a screenshot to Trello.
