Day 2 of our group rotations went super well! Most of the kids didn’t even need their schedules! They are really enjoying it, and I am excited to see some results in about 6 weeks.
We normally have garden on Thursdays, but Ms. Rachel was out today. Instead, we went to the library to check out some new books. They now know all of their reading levels and were really able to choose some just right books. They learned how to find books by their level with Ms. McBrayer and Ms. Ray. I think I want to make a poster with some examples of series they can choose based on their level. If anyone would like to help me with this, just let me know! (any help is always appreciated!)
Doubling has been the buzz word in math for the past couple of days. The first thing we did this morning after morning work was go over their Magic Pot problems from homework. They learned to play 2 new games today: Doubles Array and Double It. The chose chose a card from the deck (number one through ten), doubled the number, created an array (rectangle) and wrote an equation to match it. They enjoyed having the time to play games a the end of the day and worked very well with their partners. Here is Asa and Sebastian playing!
Please remember that tomorrow is the deadline for the Scholastic Book Order forms. Also, please sign up for a time to meet for a conference if you have not already done so. Thanks so much! Enjoy your evening!!
