This last weekend, I attended a training called Win Win Discipline. It was good and I plan to use some of the information I learned in class. I also purchased a couple of books that will review vocabulary and grammar by getting students up and moving. We are really excited to use them. We are also going to do more checking for understanding this week using online programs such as Plickers and Quizizz. In social studies, we are planning on doing more research so it would be great to have all devices this week. I have found that cell phones do not allow student to see articles and research well. Please send other devices when possible.
What we are learning this week:
Math: We are practicing different math strategies and starting to memorize multiplication facts.
Writing: Students will finish an informational essay on a text about gorillas.
Reading: Students are going to practice finding details that support the main idea of text. Students are also going to continue answering various questions about the text.
Social Studies: Students are going to have the opportunity to research, read, and share out about Greek Myths.
Science: This week, we are planting seeds in Diggs. This is going to be part of our science this week.
