What's Going On In Our Class?
We continue to practice fluency, reading/ writing, comprehension strategies, and stamina during our literacy workstations. Our books each week are focused on a weekly theme and are used daily to model and practice a variety of comprehension strategies. Our workstations are transitioning to a digital platform using Google Classroom and our class website. Students are expected to be productive at each station daily. Feel free to check out our class website to see what options your child has at most of the literacy workstations each week. mCLASS assessments are also going on to identify your child's current reading level.
We continue to practice problems of the day with Kahoot. We also use MobyMax for 10 minutes each day to practice math facts. Brief lessons on a math skill are introduced weekly using interactive math notebook games. Ask your child to show you his/her math journal. Journals can go home everyday for practice; however, please send back to school so your child is able to make additional journal entries.
We are working on opinion writing. Students type opinion pieces and short stories using Google Docs and Google Classroom. The completed writing is shared with me for review and editing. If you have access to the internet, ask your child to go on the MGSD Digital Resources site: https://sites.google.com/a/mgsd.k12.nc.us/mgsd-digital-resources/ and login to Google to show you his/her writing.
A Look In Our Class
Math Journals help us practice new concepts and review old concepts.
Written responses after playing the math games are expected for students to explain their understanding of a concept.
We like to have a "fire" going during our literacy block!
The file folder offices are used to help keep the children on task and minimize distractions.
