Today we looked closely at the three different types of rocks and how they are formed. We began to classify and categorize rocks in these three areas of : metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary. The students watched a short video about these rocks and made ton of connections to the observations that we made on Monday. We also sang a short song about the three different types of rocks to help us remember them.
Morning Journal: What job would you like to have and why?
Writing Workshop: We continued to work on our terrible day stories. I even told them one of my terrible day stories from when I was a kid.
Reading Workshop: We learned how to "buzz" in the correct way. When a student buzzes about a book, they talk about it with a partner. We discussed that they need to remember to listen politely, make eye contact, ask good questions, and talk about things they have in common.
Math Workshop: We took our tally mark graph data and created a bar graph. The students collected data on the birthdays of their classmates and then created a bar graph. They also created their own favorite drink graph. Tonight for homework they need to complete page 146, set C.
Science: Please see above about rocks.
SS: We continued to focus on the Blue Ridge Region and the Piedmont Region of South Carolina. We created a t-chart with the different qualities of both regions.
Book orders are due next Friday!!
