Here are some pictures from the week:
Sometimes I give the kidos a learning target, other days I ask
"What was today's learning target?
The students use an exit ticket to tell me.
I am teaching some students with special needs this year.
I have a few kidos who have trouble with story elements.
We practiced setting for 3 days.
The first day the kidos worked on a sort.
I gave the small group different words.
They took turns sorting their words.
I reused my Inference poster from last year.
I showed a video called "Partyly Cloudy" by Pixar from YouTube
for the day one lesson. The kidos really understand inferences now!
In the afternoon I meet with grade 5 students every other day. One my odd days, I meet with 7th graders. I am working on different vocabulary lessons with both classes. Here are my 5th graders writing different answers on the board.
In grade 5 I push into classes. We are reading Esperanza Rising . The students had to write a two voiced poem about two characters. THey then had to write two about themselves, THe teacher and I modeled one example:
Below is the one picture I remembered to take of 7th grade work. The students had read a text two days before. They came up with a title for the text. I had purposely covered it up when I copied the text. I asked them to highlight key details from the text. Each student was given a word from the text. They had to explain what the word meant in regards to the text. The post it note was to write a new sentence using the word from the text.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures.
