Our second question for our Wonders reading curriculum was introduced today. The students read a short story today focusing on the question, "How do our actions affect others?" As we read this selection the students looked at how 2 friends had to learn to work the importance of compromising and standing up for yourself when you disagree. We will continue reading texts throughout the week that focuses how our actions impact others.
We started our day with the internet not working, thus causing my math plans to adapt to the situation. The students reviewed rounding, comparing numbers, and representing numbers in other forms. After our review, the students took the graded knowledge demonstrations as they all felt confident in their place-value skills. I will have this graded tonight. Students will have the opportunity to receive instruction based on their understandings in order to make corrections on any standards they did not master.
The next writing genre the students will take on is a personal narrative. We learned today that a personal narrative is written in the first person, shares a personal experience using dialogue and descriptive words, and the story is a real-life experience. The assignment notebook code for tonight is for the students to identify what the topic of their personal narrative. I look forward to seeing the creativity of the class come out in this next writing piece. I hope you all have a wonderful night and I look forward to another great day of learning!
