|LOOK at these precious owls!!! Aren't they GREAT?!? Eva snapped this pic on her recent trip to the zoo and museum in Cincinnati....waaaaay AMAZING :)|
All QUEST students made up their spelling tests that they missed yesterday. I checked spelling activites from last night and you all continue to impress me daily on these...you're so creative!!! I really am so proud to be your teacher! Students then completed their assessment of our recent skills (this was a tough ORQ in hopes to really get up prepped for anything that can be thrown our way). We will be peer scoring these to get more practice with using a scoring guide/ rubric and identifying qualities present or not present in an ORQ by giving constructive criticism (using the rubric and teacher 'model 4' that we'll write together to guide us). Once students were finished, they had the option to: complete their "story kite", take an AR test over their completed group's chapter book, play a spelling game with a partner, or take 'comprehension card' tests with a partner.
HOMEWORK: continue reading/ working to complete reading of group's chapter book.
**ALSO, work on spelling packet as it is due by Friday!
We were so very attentive today and got through so much instruction! Our time was spent through guided practice, getting our hands on the manipulatives (fraction strips) we made yesterday to help us compare, order, and identify fractions (which was our learning outcome: I will be able to compare, order, construct, and identify fractions and their equivalents).
HOMEWORK: because we got through so much in class and did such a great job working on fractions, there is no homework. Our brains got A LOT of exercise today!
PM activities:I hope you have a terrific Tuesday!

To all my former students in Beta Club, I am SOOOOOO very, very proud of you! You were so very wonderful to have in class and I know life is going to take you through many wonderful journeys. Just promise you'll come back and visit your old 4th grade teacher!
To my 3rd graders, this can be you in just 2 years! Can you believe that?!? I believe in all of you and know that your potential is limitless! Reach for the sky and you'll land among the stars! You know the sign that's the magnet above our door? I believe every bit of that quote from Dr. Seuss, "Kid, you'll move mountains!" And I am certain all of you can and will!
