Happy Thursday, all!
We completed our focus upon symmetry and will move into polygons and more in-depth Geometry tomorrow (symmetry was just our intro). Students took a quiz over symmetry and we also worked on our multiplication facts. Thankfully, many students followed instructions in completing their timed tests last night and rewriting the missed facts 5 x each.
HOMEWORK: Rewrite every single (even the blank ones) missed fact 5 times each! Repetition promotes fluency with these facts and students HAVE GOT TO GET THEM MEMORIZED, WITHOUT EXCEPTION. Also, please take a practice test (3 min.) and get it signed by an adult!
Students continued with goal setting with Mr. Featherston and also using a text to find answers to questions.
HOMEWORK: complete Quiz over New Year's celebrations in other cultures.
We worked on writing an imaginative narrative by brainstorming a crazy animal (that's not usually a pet) we could imagine to have. We will be writing a story based on our ideas.
