Let's take a look back at this week in the classroom.
In Reading, we began our informational genre study. I started this unit by having each child write down three animals they'd like to learn more about on a post-it note. I collected these and assigned each child an animal from his/her choices, making sure that each child had a different animal and that I could locate books on his/her reading level.
Then, I told students that I wanted to become an expert on sharks. We began to create a K-W-L by listing everything we know about sharks. Next, I wanted to find out what they WONDERED (wanted to know) about sharks. Again, I gave them all a post-it and had them write their question on it. We then sorted the questions and created an Affinity Diagram to guide our research.
In Science we began learning about different habitats. Students are in the middle of working on their habitat murals that will show plants and animals that can be found there. They were asked to show food chains that could be found in their habitat.
Students are using the ActiVotes for the first time!
We're reviewing place value.
I love this pic! They go crazy when the graph shows 100% of them answered the question correctly!
