We are still rockin and rollin on MClass testing. Remind the kids that written answers need to be fully explained with details from the text.
ex: What was his character trait?
Not passing answer - Brave. (didn't include details from the text)
Not passing answer - He was brave when he was sleeping. (did not make sense)
Passing answer - He showed he was brave when he stood up to the giant.
Excellent answer - He showed he was brave when he stood up to the giant, because he overcame his fear of the giant. He was afraid the giant would eat him, but he finally showed he was brave when the giant threatened his mom, so he stood up to the giant and won.
In math we are using the distributive property with place value. 6 x 40 (breaking down 40 into 4 and 10 instead of 5 and 8). So (6x10)+(6x4) = 60 + 24 = 84
In Science we continued working on the Moon Webquest.
It was cold outside at recess today, and tomorrow will be very cold. Please bring in appropriate outerwear.
