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!
Today in math, students "scooted" around the room to read various story problems. They were then to create an array to match the story problem and then write a number sentence to match the array. An example story problem was: The garden had 5 rows of snails, there were 3 snails in each row. How many snails were there?
Our class created e-portfolios today using Evernote. Mr. Hovey came into our class helped create our accounts. We will be finding artifacts for each subject and reflecting on our work throughout the year.
Today in shared math, we read One Hundred Hungry Ants and identified all the various ways the ants could march in 100 to get to the picnic. While finding patterns to our findings, we worked with a partner on multiplies of 10. We were solving real-world problems using our multiplies of 10 strategies.
An example problem we worked on was: The Bank of Mathematics has run out of $100, Alison wants to withdraw $300 in $10 bills. How many $10 bills does she get? Ask your child on how to solve it!
