We extended our patterns by writing stories using the patterns we created. This involves higher level critical thinking to synthesize the pattern activity and create a story that applies the chosen pattern. Check for those outside our Target Classroom soon!
We squeezed in a mindfulness video called Enchanted Forest to help the kids re-focus after lunch.
We worked more on our novel with some close reading about author's word choice. The kids shared responses that showed deep thinking and critical reflection. I was very impressed with them! We read a bit more and then investigated a new web-based research tool called Thinglink. Check it out: Mixed Up Files-CH 4.
HW: Finish the Math Pattern Stories
Until next week,
