Today at science we mixed classes with Mrs. Crowther's. We used truflixs a website on the library links page. On truflixs we started reading chapters 1&3 in a ecology book and had to take down notes with a partner. Before we started reading we took a preassessment with different ecology vocabulary to see if we knew what the words meant or had even heard them before. We did this using the four corners method shown above in the big picture.
For part of our wonderful day we had a little math class, too. In math we watched a video then started an inspirational activity called Four 4s, an activity that 1st grade through 8th grade is doing at different times in their math classes. You have to use four 4s in an equation to equal numbers 1 through 20 using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and or, division. We worked with our table, a partner, or alone.
We have had another wonderful day together and hope the second year together will be wonderful, too. Not just in science and math, but in lunch, reading, morning meeting and, more. All parts of are day have been great so far. We are all in a great class together and glad to have an awesome teacher.
