It is hard not to be excited by what we will accomplish this school year. In 10 days we have moved from simple sentences to complex sentences. We have learned to navigate the place value chart and use exponents. We’ve built out a digital tool library and we are accessing resources through Teams. Moreover, we are completing daily meetings and building stronger relationships. In short, another great week.
At the beginning of the week, I reminded the students that we would maximize our instructional time until our Holiday Celebration on Wednesday, at 2:30. That is exactly what they did. We covered a lot with explorations of unit fractions, adaptations, work on syntax, and fluency practice via Readers Theater. We gamified content with Quizizz and built background knowledge with Edpuzzle. We were productive and the kids covered important content. Oh yeah, we were also filmed.
