Since we are focusing on the history of Durham and Middlefield, my question is... How do you think the towns have changed over the past 100 or even 200 years? Do you think anything is the same?
If you participated in the "no-electronics" challenge, please blog about it here! How did you feel? What did you do instead? Do you think life is better now, or in the 1700s?
Of all the things you are learning in school, what do you think will be the most useful when you are an adult? Explain why.
Hello my friends!
Well, looks like the snow is keeping us from school for a little bit longer. Hope you are all safe, warm, and enjoying some time with your families. Since we couldn't be in school today, and we won't be there tomorrow (Tuesday), I'd like you to work on a few things. First, I want you to respond to this post. Please write (type) a journal entry about what you've been doing during this snowstorm. Include thoughts, feelings, activities, etc. I will post a sample. Some of our SUMMARY words might help you organize your thoughts!
Next, math facts. Sit with someone and practice the multiplication fact you are working on. (If you're "done" with your facts, practice for speed!)
Suggestions: Practice with cards, make your own Mad Minute, have someone orally give you facts, etc.
ALSO, please visit Xtramath if you haven't already! I'm going to be checking the site to see who participates today and tomorrow :)
READ! READ! READ! I know you don't have a recording sheet, but please continue to read at least 20 minutes a day.
Finally, visit one (or more!) of the websites that I've posted on this site. They are lots of fun and great practice.
I miss you all. See you very soon!
We began talking about our share today. I love our decision to share fractions in a "restaurant style." What are some of your other ideas for the share? I know I didn't get to hear everyone today, so please jot down your thoughts below!
What is the best part of your book so far? Explain why you like that part.
If you could be any character in any book, who would you want to be, and why?
If you could add a new book (or series) to our classroom library, what would it be? Why?
