Mrs. Gleason's Class ~ Test corrections and signed Module 1 test are due Tuesday!
Mr. Hart's Class ~ We completed module 1 on Thursday. I will be sending home the assessments to be signed and corrected on Monday. Students should make corrections to the problems they missed on a seperate sheet of paper. I will give them back a half point on the test for each corrected answer that is correct. Corrections and the signed test must be returned to me by Wednesday. On Tuesday we will be starting module 2. This is a module on metric units of conversion. We will look at the different metric units and convert them between larger units and smaller units. We will apply this to addition and subtraction problems as well as word problems. This is a very short module and should be finished within a week. After which we will turn our focus towards multiplication and division. That module will take us into January.
PAWS ~ One of my favorite parts of teaching! The PAWS tasks are opinion based essays. This week I have modeled the planning and drafting. The kids seemed really excited! They all have planned and some are even to the point of editing. I really want the kids to do some of their own editing before it reaches my eyes. I really push the kids to be the writer that they don't think is possible. I don't allow the kids to use the pronoun "you" and no conclusions beginning with "That" or "This." After we get through this first piece, PAWS will be a weekly task! I can't wait - they are already producing essays with five paragraphs; introduction, three body paragraphs, and a conclusion! Life is soooooo good!
Read Aloud ~ We are already on our third book! I love reading to the kids! It's such a great way for us to connect without the kids having to worry about the words. All they have to do is think! Please ask your child about Florida and Dallas. They are the main characters of Ruby Holler.
