Time for Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching!
The his friend spent the night and the next morning we hit the mall and his favorite restaurant, Dave & Busters.
One of the things he bought were these magnetic earrings (the only way mom would you allow him to have any earrings!).
He loves jumping at the mall on these trampoline harness things! What a daredevil!
And in case you were wondering, those bottles are rootbeer!
We practiced some fractions during small groups. We worked on the idea that when the numerator and denominator are the same or equal, the fraction is equal to 1 whole.
Because I taught 7th grade math before switching to Elementary, I know that students are often afraid of big numbers because they are big. I don't want my students to be intimidated later on down the road, so we often use big numbers to show that the rule is still the same.
And while we are at it, why not throw in a few variables to make things interesting?
She was so proud to be doing algebra! No math anxieties here!
We started a new read aloud this week - The One and Only Ivan. I absolutely LOVE this book and so do the students!
Student Treasures for one of our writing units. The students chose our Fairy Tales unit to publish as a class book. The books arrived this week and I couldn't have been more pleased with them! They were very high quality and the students are so proud!
How was your week?
