This week we learned about the properties of addition. My students used dice to create addition problems that displayed the addition properties. I found the idea at Ginger Snaps if you want to see what we did.
We also started our math groups this week and the kids had a great time learning how to use our Versatiles.
Do you know about Coin Clues? I ordered this book from Mind Ware (which I love) and we started them this week in math to earn tickets for the good job jar. The students are given clues to determine the order of the coins. It is great for critical thinking and the kids were begging to do more!
As you can see, I LOVE Dr. Pepper! Thank you Ryan L for filling my fridge! I'm not sure how the water got in there. lol I think it must be left over from field day last year.
On day on the way back from lunch a few of my boys found these boxes. They jumped inside and said they were "thinking inside the box."
This week in science we have been learning about conduction, convection, and radiation. We spend a lot of time with our heat transfer pictures. I made a Voice Thread with a few of the pictures. Check it out and add some comments if you'd like. We are going to play around with Voice Thread because I'd love to see my students start to use it. I told them they can figure it out and then teach me!
I was also excited to find our that popplet featured our class mission statement on their blog! See it here.
STUDENTS: Share one example of conduction, convection, OR radiation. Make sure you don't repeat what your classmates say. Go back and read the comments before you post to get credit this week. I'll have your tickets ready Monday morning.
