Math Monday - PARCC

Today begins the PARCC math testing.  We will be testing for the next four days, for about an hour each session.  Today and Thursday, we will test in the afternoon, right after recess.  Tuesday and Wednesday, we will test in the morning, beginning around 9:15.

This morning, the children read quietly prior to the announcements.  After, we reviewed some of the PARCC practice math test items, concentrating on using the tools available.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  After that, we did a warm up involving multi-digit multiplication and divisions, and a word problem using angle measurement.  Then, we did a whole group math lesson focusing on additive angles.  Basically, given known angle measurements, we used addition (or subtraction) to figure out an unknown.  Finally, as promised, we finished a PARCC practice Kahoot that we began on Friday.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When hey returned to class, we began the Unit 1 portion of the math PARCC assessment.  The test itself took about an hour but the session took a bit longer.  When the children were finished, they got to take a well deserved break.

We ended the day by going over our Genius Hour Driving questions and identifying sub-questions that will need to be answered in order to complete an amazing project.
