We began the four-day week by resuming a normal schedule during the day. Each student was given a printout of the pledges made along with an envelope to collect the money. Please collect the pledges and return the money as soon as possible. I am still AMAZED that my class collectively received about $2,000 in pledges!
Literacy's focus this week is a continuation of summarizing and going over theme. Theme is the central idea, the lesson, the overall topic of the story. Below is a graphic that we used to discuss and determine the theme of the read-aloud book, The White Mountains:
I had the class pair up and choose a book that both partners read. Then they decided which theme the book was based on and why. After that, they went to their Chromebooks to fill out a form that I made and I compiled the data on the chart below:
In math, we went over factors and multiples. I made two tutorials when I was instructing my class. They can be found here.
I am also posting a recording of the lesson on factors and multiples that I used. If it is well-received enough, I can add more content and post this daily.
In science, we spent one more day reviewing for tomorrow's test. I used a site that has been very reliable for years: Socrative. I am going to leave the quiz up until tomorrow morning. My Room Name is 514034. Students can take it as many times as they like.
