HAPPY BIRTHDAY BAYLEE BUG!!! What a bright light of radiance you are in our classroom and oh how we love you so! We hope you have a the best day!!!
EMAIL- SYSTEM DOWN:I want to apologize if you have sent me an email today/ last night- our system has been down and I've only received emails in house and none from any outside accounts. I can send, but not receive, so like I said, I am not getting anything, but from peeps here at SMA. I hate losing contact with you for any point in time, so if you have emailed me, again I am very sorry. Once they come through, I will get back with you asap- your concerns and insights are always of utmost importance to me.
Henry's Post for today is HERE
Reading- Analyzing Relationship Homework activity examples (Thomas AND Schleg students):
|Spencer: My relationship is with my sister, my cousin, and me. We are alike because|
|Mason: My relationship is between my Daddy Joe (grandfather) and me. We feel a great love between each other, like a grandfather and grandson should. We need each other because he always makes me feel better and supported.|
LEARNING TARGET: I CAN analyze relationships between characters.
Students first shared their pictures they brought in of a friend or family member, answering the following questions: Who is this Relationship with? How do you both feel about each other? Why do you and this person need each other? Describe the relationship- it is positive or negative?
Then, we discussed why it is important to examine relationships- especially in a work of realistic fiction because it connects you to the characters and their raw, real emotions. We created a sociogram connecting all the characters in the book to the protagonist, Jess.
Students then started rotations to engage in discussion and activities in the advancement of mastery with this concept.
|Relationship Sociogram we created in class|
INDEPENDENT PRACTICE: Students completed a relationship roster about characters in the book and then answered questions about chapter 7, 8, and 9.
Students learned about extreme weather.
Students learned about vikings and their ships and early explorers to America.
HOMEWORK: Vikings ships worksheet
LEARNING TARGET: I CAN explore and identify rules for divisibility.
A whole number is divisible by another whole number if, after dividing, the remainder is zero. In this lesson students explore and develop certain patterns when testing the divisibility rules for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, and 10. Exploring divisibility helps increase students’ number sense and helps them become more aware of relationships and patterns among numbers.
Today we continued our focus upon the exploration of divisibility rules for the numbers 6, 9, and 4. We reviewed homework and made some observations about exploring similarities in multiples and divisible numbers (all multiples of 2 are ALSO multiples of 2 and 5 and thus divisible by them, etc.). Then, students got into groups and answered several questions involving the exploration of putting these rules and concepts into action through tests and trials and application of them.
|All multiples of 3 are circled in red; all multiples of 2, 5, and 10 are circled in black|
Students reviewed their chapter questions and study guides completed last night.
HOMEWORK: test is Friday
