Marvelous Monday

It is so hard to believe that the last week of school is hear.  It is definitely bittersweet.

This morning, the students worked on their Genius Hour presentations or the ABC's of Fourth Grade presentations for Fly Up Day.  Then, after the announcements, we began our social studies lesson.

Today, we focused on the Southern Region of the original 13 colonies.  The children were given a bunch of online and print resources to use.  Then they chose whether to create a Kahoot or complete a flip book focusing on the states, the main settlements, and the economy of the region.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  After that, we did a Challenge 24 warm up.  Then, we began our rotations.

During the small group rotation, we practiced using a protractor to draw and measure the angles in an obtuse and a right triangle.  During math with a partner, the students wrote equations, using a variable to represent the unknown, and solved for it, to determine the correct answers for multi-step word problems.  Those who finished early played Multiplication War to work on basic fact fluency.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the students watched two Learn Zillion lessons and then practiced solving word problems using Thinking Blocks.

We will have our last formative tomorrow.  It will cover drawing and measuring the angles in a triangle, and multi-step word problems.

HOMEWORK is posted on GC - Holman's Homework.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and indoor recess.

When we returned to class, we began our literacy block.  The students worked on their Genius Hour presentations and the ABC's of Fourth Grade, to share with third graders on Fly Up Day.  I worked with students who needed help with their Genius Hour Presentation.  We did take a break around 2:00 to play a fun Kahoot about movies and TV shows.

PLEASE make sure your child reads for at least 20 minutes tonight.
