We finished up our first reading unit, which was an author study of Andrew Clements. Students created character trading cards for their final project. Our next unit will be historical fiction!
I was finally able to integrate more technology into our classroom! We used the app and website called "Plickers" to help us review for our science test on life cycles. Each student had a card that was unique to them. Based on how they rotate their card, they choose the answer A, B, C, or D to answer the multiple choice question. I then scanned their answers using my iPad and the results were displayed on the board. It was a fun way to mix up instruction!
Wednesday was "Awards Chapel". Ms. Kamiya, our principal, handed out awards for perfect and outstanding attendance, outstanding homework, and honor roll. Fourteen of my seventeen students made the honor roll! Fifth grade also tied with sixth grade for having the best behavior during Specials! So that means we will get to have a time of celebration this next week!
