Reflection for February 7, 2019

What I Wore Thursday

Before School 7:30 - 8:00 :
  • Planning
  • Copies for S.S.
  • Lock-down meeting 7:35-8:00
Was able to make copies and get to the meeting on time! Forgot to pee and had to wait until Prep! Updates on the TFSD Lock-down procedures.

Social Studies 8:00 - 8:45:

The Proclamation of 1763

  • Video
  • Reading & Questions
We finished early so we were able to hole punch our handouts from the beginning of this week. The video was a great way to introduce the message from the King. The students understood why The Proclamation of 1763 was a cause of the American Revolution. I am feeling good about the SS unit so far. I do need to figure out the assignments that will be done for the Road to Revolution, the American Revolution, and the overall unit. Focusing on one single standard.

Prep Time 8:45 - 9:30:

  • Team Meeting 
  • Prepare for Math
  • Discuss guest teacher plans for Monday and Tuesday as CT will not be in.
  • Carnival Plans, April 5th grade games : ring toss, coin toss, and another one

Math 9:30 - 10:30:

Unit 5 Module 1 Session 5: Trading Places Number String
(Pg. 170) Fractions of Wholes

We were only able to get through part of the number string. Most students were needing assistance with the proper strategies to use with Multiplying Whole numbers with fractions. Students came to board and showed how they figured it out. One student brought up a different strategy that was not clear to myself or students. Asked him if this strategy would work on other problems, he stated probably not. Then we discussed as a class of why this is not a known strategy. Students were having problems staying on task and I had to visit each set of partners to make sure they were completing their problem assigned.

The next time I complete a number string, I will put the process with explanations on a Google Slide to keep us on target. While dealing with classroom management issues, it will make it easier to stay on track.

Language/ Writing 10:45 - 11:45:

Model Paragraphs: Purpose & Results
  • Listed the sources of evidence for the purpose and results.
Students did not follow along and began side conversations. After three warnings they were given instructions to complete the purpose paragraph on their own. They copied the paper in google classroom and I am unable to view their work. A few students told CT they did not understand what they were supposed to do when she assisted them. I was instructed to make sure the students knew what they were to do; however, no students asked questions when I asked if they had any.

Wonders 1:30 -2:30:
Create this weeks Literacy Spot while students complete Unit Assessment

After School 3:00 - 3:45:
  • Reflect
  • Discuss our plan for when guest teacher is here Monday & Tuesday. I will not be in Friday as I will be attending all day seminar for student teaching.
Until next time ...
