Self-Refleciton & Self Directed Learner:
We had a super busy day, starting with our interactive notebooks. We finished up our class procedures to keep us on track with being self-directed learners. Next we moved to the computer lab where we created graphs of our multiple intelligences. The kids did a great job on them--showcasing the tremendous diversity of the talents in our groups. We also discovered that we have some real computer experts in our classes. Their names will go up on our Expert Walls next week!
Evaluative & Critical Thinking, Making Connections, & Communication:
We started some research on the time period of our novel study, Twenty One Balloons. We'll continue this next week. The kids also honed their dictionary skills by tackling some words from the first chapter of our novel. They should include part of speech and a short definition. Some may have this to finish for homework.
We challenged our math skills with some different types of problem solving--visual, patterns, algebra, mental math, and word problems. The kids rose to the occasion, even learning what a Stem and Leaf plot is.
HW: Goal Setting Sheet & Vocab (if not done).
Eager for Wednesday,
