We also had kids in and out for pictures. But it all works out, since Flexibility is one of our strengths!
We're moving along with lessons at the end of Level 2. Today we focused on using convenient zeros and translating word problems into algebraic equations to solve.
Divergent Thinking/Affective Skills
Today we unpacked a quote from our book, Ungifted. "What if normal people are even weirder than us?" The kids created scenes or comic strips portraying the meanings of this quote. The results were humorous, insightful, and revealing! Love the elaboration, flexibility, and originality we saw today!
We finished up our vocabulary activity from the earlier chapters of our novel. Today we started a new word study focus-prefixes. The very first prefix was...YES, you guessed it....UN! The kids brainstormed as many UN words as possible. We'll use those words next time to create a display.
HW: Finish UN word list, Finish Comic Strip
Unable to wait for Fall Break!
See you soon,
