Missing Assignments and Absences
One common thread that all fourth and fifth grade teachers have noticed this past quarter is the amount of missing assignments students have. In attempt to try to help students better organize themselves and turn in their work in a timely manner, fourth and fifth grade teachers will be meeting in attempt to see what we can do in order to help students prepare for middle school.
Furthermore, I am taking steps in the classroom to help students become more reflective on what assignments need to be taken home and how to pace themselves when working on projects. The entire class has used the assignment notebook as a way to reflect on what they should have turned in during the day and what the students will have more time completing during class the next day. Also, if a student is missing, they will have their assignments stapled together with a description of the assignments and placed in the "While You Were Out..." folders. I have informed the students that it is their responsibility to collect this work as I will not remember to give them this work. I am hoping this will help the students stay organized so that they will have these skills mastered before they go to middle school for sixth grade.
Yellowstone Art Museum
Trish Madison came from to the classroom today to discuss landscapes. The students learned the three parts to a landscapes: 1) land, 2) sky, and 3) horizon line. The students also viewed 3 landscapes that I have included below. The students have discussed how the artist created the art work, the emotions the piece of work evoked, and how we can understand the perspectives of the piece.
Remainders in Division Problems
The students are all in love with division. In fact, they have all stated that they like division better than multiplication. We used the iTools Base Ten Counters today as a way to see what we do when we divide and how we can understand remainders. Students have enjoyed using the base ten iTool in order to determine the answer to our division problems. The assignment notebook code for the night is for the students to do 33 divided by 4. I hope you all have a great night and I look forward to another great day of learning.
