Today the students continued to learn how we can protect our environment and natural resources. The students began looking at some endangered animals. As we read, the students have noticed a common connection between all of these problems are human impact. We will continue to discuss how we can be part of the solution and not create a bigger problem.
We discussed our metacognition today in our reading groups. The students learned that metacognition is thinking about your thinking. It is important that students monitor their comprehension as they read in order to engage in the book their are reading and gain a true understanding of what the author wants us to know.
As we transition into the second quarter, the students are busy with showing what they have learned about the structure of a well organized paragraph. The students are finishing their paragraphs so that I can show them off during the parent-teacher conferences.
We started diving into multiplication today. It is extremely important that each student practices their multiplication facts in order to gain fluency with knowing these facts. Today the students learned how to understand a multiplicative comparison problem. The assignment notebook code for tonight is for the students to tell you a multiplicative comparison sentence for the problem 3 x 5 = 15. The sentence should include the phrases "__ times as many as ___ is __." I hope you all have a great night and I look forward to another great day of learning!
I am a fourth grade teacher going on my seventh year of teaching. I have truly loved every year that I have taught and I look forward to sharing classroom activities we take part in during this upcoming school year!
