Math: Finish/make corrections to today's math (short division)
Math: Study for Evaluation on Friday
On Friday I will be assessing the student's understanding of multiplication and division. The students will be asked to show their knowledge by answering some standard algorithm questions (multiplication and division) and their thinking, application and communication by completing word problems. When answering the word problems they will be expected to complete the math (showing all of their work), have a final clear answer and prove their thinking/answer by using a different strategy to show that they are in fact correct.
I'm sure that you have noticed that we are not currently doing our Book Clubs. The reason for this, is that we are doing some new year literacy assessments to see how much we have progressed since September. The students are completing a reading assessment (DRA), writing assessment (OWA) and spelling assessments. Already, I am seeing great progress from many.
