Morning Journal: Would you like to be a paleontologist when you grow up, if yes why and if no why not? I got everything from yes it would be a cool job to no I don't like to be dirty. This was a really interesting journal to read and let me know a lot of misconceptions that students have about dinosaur bones.
Morning Math: patterns, graphing, addition, subtraction, measurement
I went over the problems that will be on the morning math test tomorrow and I had the students circle those problems, so they can study at home tonight.
Math: GROWTH patterns: When you are trying to figure out a growth pattern you must draw a t-chart, because this will help to keep you organized. Sometimes a growth pattern may stay the same all the way down, but other times the pattern will change back and forth. All of our patterns can be addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division. Your child needs to still practice their flash cards every day. We continue to take our timed multiplication test each week.
Imagine It: Today we looked at the difference between facts (something you can prove) and opinions (something that you feel). While this may seem like an easy concept to recognize in a story or passage, most students find it difficult because they think just because it is written in the story, it makes it a fact. We looked at many different examples on the pages of our story. I also went over the questions on tomorrow's test to better prepare them
SS: We reviewed over urban, suburban, and rural communities. We will have a test on this unit next Thursday. I will send home a study guide tomorrow.
