Room 2 got right to work after a wonderful spring break! We started right back in the swing of things with guided math. Our centers were MobyMax, math journaling, guided groups with Ms. Geary, and a fact fluency game with a partner.
Fridays are fact fluency days in math in room 2! We challenge ourselves in Kakooma on gregtangmath.com. Our goal is to achieve each level in under 1 minute and with NO penalty time. It is challenging!
The third graders earned their PAWS reward for the 2nd trimester. As a grade level, we earned over 350 PAWS! Way to go! As a reward, students got to wear their pajamas to school. What a great, snowy day to wear comfortable clothes. Zzzzzzz......
We are having fun in math! We worked in groups to create a fraction poster. On the posters, students had to represent their fraction in as many ways as they can. They could find equivalent fractions, draw diagrams and make models. Students had to also put a "trick" fraction by putting in a fraction that is not equivalent to their fraction. Tomorrow, students will go around and try to find that "trick" fraction on each others posters.
Students are practicing reading fluently and with expression. We are using different fairy tales to act out our words! The big performances will be next week!
This week, each guided reading group has a different fairy tale that we will be annotating to find the moral of the story. Students worked hard today annotating Friendly Little Red.
Room 2 has the routine of guided math down! Today students rotated to different centers focusing on various math skills. Students worked on fact fluency with a parent volunteer, worked on individual goals using MobyMax, used higher level thinking skills with their SEM project and worked with Ms. Geary on real-world problems involving multiplication and division.
Room 2 3rd graders love when parents come in to volunteer. Each week, we have several parents come in to help out. Today, we had a mom come in and work with students on their fluency. Thanks for all your support parents!
Thank you Mrs. Acord for showing us Destiny Quest. We learned how to use it as an app and how to use it through the website. AWESOME RESOURCE!
We used the Give 1 Get 1 strategy in Social Studies today. Thank you Mrs. Schneider for showing us this awesome way to share our knowledge! Groups researched a government leader and then shared a fact about who they researched. They then received a fact about from a peer about another leader. We were able to use both our listening and speaking skills!
