We made it through another great day, and it's hard to believe the school week is already over half done! We continued with summarizing (code: SUM it up!) what we read with the challenge of limiting the number of words to less than 12. We practiced SUM it up - S: Shorter than the text, U: Use your own words, M: Main idea only. After completing the SRI test students had a few minutes to wrap up any loose ends with their inquiry projects in preparation for their presentations beginning on Friday. In math we reviewed conversions while solving word problems as well as worked on solving problems including money (making change, total cost). The day slipped away from us as the SRI test took longer than expected which meant a quick review of nouns, proper and common, rather than beginning our cinquain poems.
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!
