Week 27- Math Coach & Blowing Bubbles
Mrs. James, our math coach, came in this week to help us practice word problems! We also played a game using a line plot and fractions.
There were pizza cards and students took turns drawing cards and plotting the cards on a number line.
When time was up they added to see who had "sold" the most pizzas.
I used pentominoes and the students calculated perimeter and area for each.
We also pulled out the Cheez Its to practice area and perimeter.
Last week we learned about symmetry and I took pictures of the kids. I cut them in half and had them draw the other side. Here are just a few of the pictures we hung in the hallway this week.
At the end of the week we started writing how to papers. The topic is how to blow a bubble. We had a few classmates who don't know how to blow a bubble. We wrote step by step directions and as the kids read theirs aloud to the class they figured out where more details needed to be added.
STUDENTS: We have one more week until Spring Break. What are your plans for your week off?
