### Terrific Tuesday

This morning, the students worked on their keyboarding fluency using Typing Club.  After the announcement, we began our social studies lesson.

Today, the students used various resources, available via Google Classroom, to identify the colonies, who, when , and why they were founded, and the products and occupations that supported the economy in the New England region.  The children recorded this information in a flip book.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  After that, we completed a warm up involving the construction of additive angles.  Then, we began our rotations.

During the small group instruction we classified 2-dimensional figures by describing their angles (acute, obtuse, right) or their lines (parallel or perpendicular).  During math with a partner, the students engaged in math discourse as they used additive angles to meet criteria given on a chart.  Those who finished early worked on their basic facts by playing Multiplication War.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the children  worked on identifying different types of angles and then estimated the measurement of angles using provided links to various web sites.

For HOMEWORK the students need to watch a Learn Zillion lesson about classifying angles based on their sides and angles.  Then they will use a link called shape guess to practice the skill.

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

When we returned to class, the students began taking the spring session of the MAP-R.  This is the computerized reading assessment that self-adjusts according to the child's responses.  We had some technical  issues, but many students were able to finish.  Those who didn't will do so later in the week.

MATH HOMEWORK is posted on GC - Holman's Homework.  Reading homework is to read for 15 minutes - free choice.
