- Language: Quick Write / Type previous quick-write into Google Doc.
- Math: Finish Division Algorithm Lesson 2
I hope everyone had a good weekend. Today was a very productive day.
In reading, students read their books while I checked binders. I made it about halfway through the binder checks. Students need to finish chapter 12 by tomorrow morning for our quiz. Students also had chapters 1-6 quiz returned for corrections. New answers must be written on a separate sheet and attached to the original quiz.
In science, student discovered that teaching about a topic is more difficult than they thought. Groups worked on presentation skills and relaying information in an understandable way.
In social studies, we backtracked a bit. I planned to have students research different types of economies, but I discovered that most of them don’t know what an economy is. Instead, we read a book called The Tuttle Twins and the Miraculous Pencil, which introduces the idea of economics in an understandable way. The students took notes, and we will discuss economics more tomorrow.
In language, students typed a previous quick-write to print and edit later. This was for students to practice keyboarding as well as for their writing to be more readable.
Finally, in math we finished lesson 2. Most students seemed to really grasp onto the concept of transitioning from partial quotients to standard division. We will do more with lesson 3 tomorrow. The unit should be finished by Friday.
As always, feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or comments.
Today’s quote is from musician, Jason Mraz, “You’re not obligated to win. You’re obligated to keep trying the best you can every day.”
Have a great day!
