Reflection for February 6, 2019

What I Wore Wednesday
Before School 7:30 - 8:00:

  • Planning

Social Studies 8:00 - 8:45:

  • How to Interpret  Primary Sources 
  • Primary Source Detective: Join, or Die

For a new skill the students had a great discussion about the primary source. Students will need more opportunities to work with primary sources.

Prep Time 8:45 - 9:30:

  • Prepare for Math

Math 9:30 - 10:30:

*ELL students WIDA testing: 10:00-11:30

Unit 5 Module 1 Session 4 Sharing Strategies

  • Target One Game as Class
  • Target One Game with Partners, CT and I walk around/assist. 

Game was confusing to some students. Misunderstanding of directions of game. Previously played with one set of numbers where students played to find the equation that led them to the closest to the number 1. In real game, they were to use two sets of numbers rather than share. Next time play game in its entirety as a class to show them how to play. Made it work with one set of numbers. Students found it difficult to score.

Language/ Writing 10:45 - 11:45:

Model how to write: body

  • Body paragraph video & explanation
  • Challenges paragraph as a whole group 
  • Purpose & Results in 2 separate groups.

A few students attempted to assist me in writing the paragraph. They used information from video and sources. Students were not able or willing to share their ideas to create a sentence. Some students did not read or review the sources that we have discussed of the last week. Students are having difficulty creating sentences based on the sentences

Coming in the middle of the school year, I am not fully aware of students weaknesses and strengths. Transition statements have or have not been taught and students are unable to remember. I may have formative assessment quick-write to see what students are able to do on their own.

Wonders 1:30 -2:30:

  • Prepare for Author: Alane Adams - Discussion of who she is and questions we can ask her.
  • Assembly: Author Visit (2:00-3:00)

After School 3:00 - 3:45:

  • IEP Meeting: 3:15
  • Reflect

Until next time ...
