3rd Grade Math
Students completed their first "quick quiz" this week along with 2 more. They had the opportunity to review their work and ask questions privately if they didn't understand how to fix their error. Students are learning to work more slowly in math and read the whole question. This is a big learning curve here in AT.
Remember--if you are looking for students to do something "more" than just their homework, they can log in to TenMarks and complete a worksheet or "Jam Session". They can also use any computer games or flashcards to work on their multiplication facts.
4th Grade Math
Our grammar focus this week for both grades was on the different types of sentences--interrogative, declarative, imperative, and exclamatory.
Students created a google spreadsheet and put it into a shared folder to log their "Read to Self" time in class. We also received our usernames and passwords to "think central". This is our reading site with the interactive book so that students have access to it at home without taking the very large book in their backpack.
