You might be wondering what I'm wearing in the video. That would be a kimono. The school had its first school-wide Cub Cash event today: a Teacher Fashion Show! To celebrate, I wore the fanciest thing I own, my kimono. I wore that thing all day. I was looking good! It wasn't until later I was told it was a "What Not to Wear" fashion show. Oh well. :)
In math we worked on making number sentences. A number sentence is just an equation. We worked on making addition number sentences.
For example: Joe has 7 red apples and 3 green apples. How many apples does Joe have?
Since I couldn't take pictures to show what else we did, I will just tell you....
1. Individualized spelling tests. Each student has his/her own spelling words, they came from a list of high frequency words. I tested my students at the beginning of the year, and the words they missed are the words they started with. It takes a little extra time to test each student, but I think it's worth it. The student stays with the word until he/ she can master the word. Practice makes perfect! So, if you notice that your child brings home the same spelling word 2 weeks in a row, that shows that the student needs to work on it a little more.
2. Punctuation practice. We practiced making complete sentences with proper punctuation. My soldiers are masters at showing the correct punctuation! They especially like making the "Command" period at the end of sentences.
They like punching their palms to show that it is a "hard period".
3. Math Quiz. We took a quick math quiz over number sentences, the kids agreed it was pretty easy!
Unfortunately, we did not get to science because it was during our Teacher Fashion Show. But don't worry! We'll keep working on our lapbooks next week.
No Daily Brain today, but I promise our brains were full when we left!
