It has been a Halloween week in 3F!!!! Math word problems, (combinations and separations), have been related to Halloween! Students drew “selfies” on paper i-phones in their Halloween costumes and used adjectives and details to write and explain the “traits” of their characters. There will be no doubt “who” will be “who” as students walk in on Friday morning!
On Tuesday, our 3F buddies and 1D buddies made Halloween cards for someone special. Each child drew three pumpkins in a pumpkin patch, showing “perspective.” If you receive one of these cards, please exclaim how detailed each picture is!
Students continue to share their MA projects. I must say that the presenters are sharing their projects so well! Presenters have been using their “presenting” voice well, and the rich comments and questions have shown evidence of what students learn from each other on a daily basis. Every MA project has been so creative in unique ways. Daria’s video shows her reading a poem about what she saw at Walden’s Pond.
On Friday, students will have completed their New England state brochures, synthesizing all of the “notes” students took from given “sites” on the internet and the non-fiction books they have read in small groups. 3F students continue to surprise me with their dedication to their work and strong effort to produce the best work they can!
For math this week, students have been “estimating” answers of both addition and subtraction double digit problems. So many students want to get the “exact” answer, but when they estimate, the answer is not exact. It’s fun to watch the students “stretch” their minds. Next week, students will receive an assessment that I will send home for Chapter Three.
Happy Halloween to everyone! Enjoy this week’s slideshow:
