I missed posting yesterday (sorry!) and while it was resource day and you did not miss much in the form of announcements/ reminders, we did something extremely important in the form of an extra special day... YESTERDAY (March 24th) was MARY'S BIRTHDAY!!!
|Happy, HAPPY day you special girl! Oh how we LOVE you so!|
LEARNING TARGET: I CAN identify the most important details to summarize the information in a text.
Today we practiced with the concept of identifying the big ideas in the text and then using those big ideas to create a summary. We practiced by using our Benchmark series lesson from today where we read a story entitled, "Horatio at the Bridge" about the Etruscan people who took over Rome in 600 B.C. Using this story, we identified the big ideas and then compiled a summary, For independent practice, students reread their superheroes articles and used their organizers they completed to write a lengthy summary about the article, using all the big ideas from the organizers. This is a process where we are learning to reduce and omit details to make a concise summaries about that in which we read. Tomorrow, they will be reducing these summaries even further.
HOMEWORK: complete AT LEAST one page (front and back) in Summary packet. Do NOT complete back page of packet!
LEARNING TARGET: Math 1: I CAN subtract fractions with unlike denominators. Math 2: I CAN rename fraction differences.
Math 1 worked on subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. Math 2 worked on subtracting fractions from whole numbers and borrowing with fractions.
