The fourth graders have finished Chapter 8 of the math book. Multidigit multiplication is an important skill. Those who received an A or a B will be given extension and challenge work this week. Those who scored lower, will practice with me on Monday and Tuesday and then retake the test on Wednesday. Fifth grade will finish up Chapter 6 this week in math and take their test on Wednesday.
There is no reading journal this week, the students will complete reading activities in class as well as catch up on writing. There is no spelling or wordly wise thi
The students in Room 24 are at all times working on indpendent projects we call "Tic-Tac-Toe's". This week we will have time to catch up on our various projects and share them witht he class. These products are differentiated in the areas of subject, thinking skill, resources, and products. Students get to design their own. What I really look for in the projects is how well the students meet the objectives and self-challenge. These are not currently graded, but shared, discussed, and self evaluated.
Our class Winter Party will be on Thursday. I know we all look forward to that.
Have a great week.
