Today we heard some speeches from our students! Way to go!
We learned more about how graphs tell stories and explored making inferences. We looked at a line graph about a person drinking a glass of milk and conducted our own experiment. Tomorrow we will graph it!
We wrote a math check in and worked on sentence fluency – starting sentences in different ways.
Sentence Fluency Paragraph ( writing prompt )
Math test on Monday
Practice Word Work Words
Finish all your work from this week for Friday Fun or Not Done tomorrow
Today we wrote our electricity science test, practiced our word work words and made time for DPA! ( Daily Physical Activity ). Students reviewed their check in from last week on Mean, Median and Mode through ‘voice notes’ and teacher conferencing. We also had a lesson on Scatter plots and continued Theme 1 in Fully Alive.
Voice NOTE! Please check your Google Classroom students! I figured out the problem with retrieving the notes, you should be able to see them now if you open your ‘mean, median, mode’ check in note!
Today we had a quick review of mean, median and mode. Students received their math test study guide ( see ‘homework’ tab ). We had the opportunity to ‘explore by the seat of our pants’ and met a scientist who ventured into a crystal cave in Mexico. George Kourounis .
Students worked on improving their sentence fluency while writing a persusasive paragraph. We also worked on our new set of word work words! We played Kahoot for Science and studied in groups.
It’s good to be back! We had a busy day, starting with a math check in ( mean, median and mode ), learning about the importance of conservation of energy / electricity through an online note, learning to ‘reach into the cookie jar’ in Phys Ed and reviewing our science electricity learning for our test next week!
Friday Folders not coming home this week – definitely next week 🙂
Study for Science Test on Wed. Jan 22nd
Optional – Classroom Speeches Thurs. Jan 23
Museum Permission form – parent volunteers required!!!
Today we had our ‘scientist in the school’ workshop. We built parallel and series circuits and experiemented with insulators and conductors. We practiced passing in basketball ( chest, bounce, 2 hand overhead ) and read “The Girl in Red” to practiced our reading strategies.
Today we practiced writing parallel structure for sentence fluency and the comprehension stratey “visualizing. We learned about circuits, insulators and conductors and measures of central tendancy ( Mean, Median, Mode ) in math.
Today we completed a graph check-in online, practiced dribbling and pivoting in Phys. Ed., played ‘equation station’ and met with our buddies. Students are coming home with lots to show you in their Friday Folders from this week 🙂
Today we practiced the skill of visualizing for reading comprehension. We worked on word work activities and visualizing in our independent novels, as Mrs. Gallant met with small reading groups. We made a note in our math journal about the different types of graphs and practiced some questions from the textbook.
At the end of the day we started our unit on Electricity! in preparation for next week’s scientist in the school workshop.
