Math

by Maija Replogle


For math, students in Mrs. Stauffers are learning decimal place values and powers of ten. Before they begin Their work, Mrs. Stauffer goes through a few problems to introduce what the students will be learning that day. Then they work in partnerships to do their assignments. Mrs. Stauffer explains the lesson by using a whiteboard, or she uses an app where she can write or draw equations and visuals. If they are finished with their work, there is usually a challenge that goes along with the lesson. When math time is over, the students put the sheets in their desks, to save them for a math congress in the future. Math congresses are when all the students post a picture of their math work on a jamboard. Then, they can look at everyone else's work and give feedback.

Reading

Mrs. Stauffer is a very good reader. She also has a wall of books in our class library. Every Monday, we get new books for Reading Work. We do book clubs with the books we get from Mrs. Stauffer; Ms. Roberson & Mrs. Stauffer recommend books that represent our level of reading and our favorite series of books.


We group up in an open space or a corner when we do book clubs. There are 3-4 people in each group. In groups, we bring our book we selected as a group and are READING notebook and discuss our plan/goal. After ten or more minutes, we head back to our book club group and share what we wrote down on our NOTES. We get one or more hour of reading.


Mrs. Stauffer and Ms. Roberson care so much about past students and us, for example, Charvi. She was a past student in Mrs. Stauffer's class in 4th grade. When there are new students, she gives them new book boxes to store them.


My teachers are very good teachers and people.
