Monday: We had a productive, busy Monday. We learned about ode poems. We are writing odes to our pencils. We took a math quiz. We read about school dress codes in Time For Kids. Students in Room 200 had strong opinions about this topic. Ms. Birkey, our district digital coach joined us in the computer lab and taught us about Google docs. We have a new student in Room 200. Welcome, Chase!
Tuesday: Autumnal Greetings, Friends of Room 200! On this first day of fall, we were hopping! We are starting a math chapter about subtraction. In the afternoon, we read a non-fiction text about glaciers. We’re focusing on non fiction SEQUENCE words like first, then, next, last in our reading. We made bumper stickers to show the important ideas in our history trail book, Molly Bannaky. Interesting article about Molly’s famous grandson here. We ended the day by reading The One and Only Ivan. We’re enjoying this terrific novel.
Wednesday: Energy level was fairly high today in Room 200. Okay…it was extremely high. Some days are just like that. We worked on our odes to our pencils outside on the playground. What a beautiful afternoon. We also started learning about the Native Americans of Angel Mounds. We’ll be making artifacts tomorrow and writing in role as archaeologists. Check out the Angel Mounds site here.
Thursday: WILD ANIMAL SHOW today!!! Woohoo! We saw: coatimundi, cavi, fox, python, baboon. I think I’m missing one??? We worked a lot on our artifact display. We made artifacts from Angel Mounds. We are trying to write about, and photograph, our artifacts using our iPads. That was a little trickier than I thought it would be, but the worker bees in Room 200 gave it the old college try! A creative Thursday!
