Thrilling Thursday - Last Day of PARCC!!

Today was our final day of PARCC testing.  Yippee!!

Prior to the morning announcements, the students worked on solving our weekly puzzles.  After, we reviewed the text features used to help with comprehending technical text.  Then, given a list of ingredients and the procedure, the students used the text features to create a recipe for Rice Krispie Treats.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  After that, we did an "Eliminate It" warm up, involving angles.  Then, we began our rotations.

During the small group lesson, we reviewed how to use a protractor to measure angles, and then used a protractor to construct angles.  During math with a partner, the students played Multiplication War to work on basic fact fluency.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the students watched a Khan Academy lesson about using a protractor to construct angles.  Then they completed a follow up practice activity.  Those who had time left, used a protractor to construct angles in their math journals.

There is NO HOMEWORK tonight but we WILL have a FORMATIVE tomorrow.  The formative will cover parallel and perpendicular lines and angle measurement using a protractor.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When we returned to class, the students took the fourth, and final, unit of the math PARCC.  They were very focused and put a lot of effort into the test.  I am very pleased!!

After testing, they had some much needed "chill time" to hang out and unwind.  Then, we played a Kahoot game covering the novel Shiloh.

Once again, the students have earned a night without homework!

Remember, all STRINGS students should bring their instruments tomorrow!
