The students got to get a hand in on grading ORQs today! We learned how to use a rubric and got to practice scoring some example responses and matching them up to the rubric/ scoring guide. Once that was complete, we were then separated into partners and got to read over a peer's response. Each partner got post-its and were encouraged to make positive remarks and give constructive criticism and then had to defend the grade to Mrs. Thomas. It really was a LOT of fun as the students really had a great time and learned while they were at it! Continue studying spelling words tonight!
We completed workbook pages from yesterday and then played 'Around the World' to go head-to-head with our peers on our multiplication facts. Homework tonight is studying the sets: 2s, 3s, 5s, 10s, and 11s because there will be a QUIZ over thos facts TOMORROW (Thursday, 1.6.11).
Have a HAPPY Wednesday Evening!
