Students have successfully accessed their Spelling City accounts during our reading rotations this morning. I have structured student's accounts so that they will have assigned activities to play. Students will have time to practice words here at school and will have a test on Friday.
All students have successfully logged onto Google Classroom and completed their first assignments. I will send home a letter in tomorrow's Tuesday folder on how to access Google Classroom at home. All assignments have been labeled with the quarter the assignment was assigned. Most assignments on Google Classroom are graded based on a rubric. I will not always print the assignment; however, I will always send home the rubric with an explanation of the student grade based on the expectations outlined in Google Classroom.
Wonders Reading Rotations
The students went through the first round of reading rotations. I will meet with every reading group every day. While I am working with a small group during reading rotations, students will be practicing their spelling words, reading independently, or working on their comprehension strategies/skills. The students did a great job today with staying on task during rotations and completing the tasks I assigned.
We discussed the difference between an estimate and rounding today during our math lesson. The students created a great resource for rounding giving examples of how number lines can help with determining the nearest place-value we are rounding to. We will continue working with rounding tomorrow as we use the MimioVotes to check our progress. Please look back tomorrow on a detailed post on MimioVotes and how they help in the classroom.
Students are moving on to our next writing piece, writing friendly letters. The students will write a letter to other fourth grade students in the United States outlining interesting points regarding Montana and interesting facts about themselves. Today we discussed the parts of a letter and started making a plan of what we want to share without audience. The assignment notebook code for tonight is for the students to identify one interesting fact they learned about Montana. Write this assignment notebook code on today's planner page. I hope you all have a great night and I look forward to another great day of learning!
