CogAT testing began today. They did a great job on their first scantron, timed test. Testing continues this week and next.
Guided Reading Centers this week:
Hargrove – Time for Kids “Fossils.” Read and answer questions about the article.
Hess – Science text on Fossils. Read, learn and define the different vocabulary words and learn how fossils are formed.
Independent Center – Look up definitions of the different mineral qualities. Make a fortune teller on rocks and practice with a partner.
Lab Center – Using crayon shavings, create rocks using heat, pressure and extreme pressure. Analyze and relate created rocks to real rocks.
Writing – Continued to analyze the author’s sentence. We watched a video on the author reading the book. We then created our own sentences with the style of the author’s and shared our work with the class.
PICTURES CAME HOME TODAY.
BOX TOPS COLLECTION ENDS THIS FRIDAY.
HW: Read 20 minutes for each day this week.
NOTE: We will have a substitute on Wed afternoon while Ms. Hargrove and Ms. Hess are in collaborative planning. They will continue learning about fossils and working on their math.
