We started the day in the Tech Center. The students were given special gMail accounts that will allow them to access a special typing program. They learned how to log on today and started a lesson. This will be mostly work they do at home in technology, but it’s a great program!
In math we continued with the Hands-on Equations program. Students learned how to solve problems like 4x = 3x + 4 using the pieces and the cubes. We’ll be continuing with this through the week.
The fifth graders looked at crystals from the saline solutions they created the other day, observing the differences between ordinary salt and epsom salts.
Finally, we started reading buddies with students from room 2, Mr. Ricker’s class. It was fun!
Homework: Very light today! Sorry, homework addicts. Only the Two times Two practice paper.
