Tomorrow, the students and I will compete in the GCC gold challenge. The GCC has challenged each class to try and take 33,000 steps per person (1/2 a marathon). We have accepted this challenge and will work throughout the day tomorrow to make sure we reach this goal. Please make sure your child is wearing their pedometer.
Number of the Day: 180 (number before, number after, next odd, next even, draw in place value blocks, in words)
Writing Workshop: We began a project that will have us writing across the curriculum. We are practicing putting together writing, SS, and Science through this project. The students have to pick 4 out of 6 landforms that we are studying and create their own settlement. They will name the settlement and then place their landforms in it. In each of the different land form areas, they must decide what they would like to build in it. We will put these into a Power Point presentation on Monday.
Reading Workshop: We have gotten a little behind on our workshop activities this week, so I had the students work on their activities and they met with me in their guided reading groups.
Math Workshop: We practiced adding numbers with two, three, and four digits. I am beginning to teach them how to unpack a word problem.
Science: We worked on our projects.
SS: We finished the study guide for our test tomorrow.
