Wonderful Wednesday

This morning, the students had time to work on either their writing Wednesday stories, or their WTW definitions and sentences.  Then, after the announcements, they continued reading the non-fiction text about rocks and completing the follow up outline.  Those who finished early chose between working on their Genius Hour question or their WTW definitions and sentences.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  After that, we completed a multi-step word problem, for warm up, that required the use of multiplication and division, and we reviewed last night's homework.  Then, we began our rotations.

During the small group instruction, we continued to use place value understanding to divide 4-digit numbers by a 1-digit number.  During math with a partner, the students worked on their multiplication fact fluency as they played the card game, Multiplication Zone. Finally, during the technology rotation, the students rewatched the Learn Zillion lesson from yesterday and then practiced long division using the site, Long Division - Kids Numbers.

For HOMEWORK the students need to complete problem D on the worksheet we used in class.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When we returned to class, we began our literacy block.  First, we read and discussed chapters 10 & 11 of Shiloh.  Then the children used the text to complete a multiple choice comprehension "quiz" and write a summary of chapter 11.  Those who didn't finish will do so for HOMEWORK.

Then it was time for art.  Mr. Cosgrove had jury duty, so the students worked with a substitute.

After art, a good portion of the class had instrumental music with Mr. Gillenwater.  Those left behind worked on the Shiloh comprehension activities and their Genius Hour question.  I met with a few students to work on their Genius Hour questions.

HOMEWORK is posted on GC - Holman's Homework.
