Thrilling Thursday

Since it is Thursday, that means the students worked to figure out our weekly puzzles this morning.  Then, after the announcements, the continued using non-fiction text, and Internet links to complete the flip book about the Middle Region of the original 13 colonies.

As the children worked, I continued meeting with students to complete the monthly informal reading assessments for May.

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 lesson, we practiced drawing triangles using specific properties and then measuring the angles using a protractor.  During math with a partner the children worked on basic facts fluency by playing Multiplication War.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the students watched 3 Khan Academy lessons about classifying triangles according th=o their angles.  Then, if they had time, they completed 2 follow up activities.

For HOMEWORK the students need to use the link on GC - Holman's Homework to practice identifying and classifying triangles.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When we returned to class we turned our attention to our Genius Hour projects.  First, we reviewed the organization of my model informational paragraphs.  Then, the students pulled up their paragraphs, on their Chrome Books, and using my model paragraphs, we reviewed the criteria for the various sentences.  As we did this, the children had the opportunity to read sentences out loud, as I provided feedback.  Next, the students  met with their writing partners and worked together to revise and edit their paragraphs.

Once they were done the continued working on their Genius Hour presentations.  

During this time I completed my informal reading assessments for May...which then concluded all reading testing for this year!!!

HOMEWORK is posted on GC - Holman's Homework.
