On Monday we completed our weekend journals. We talked about the importance of adding details to our pictures and writing, and practiced labeling what is in our pictures. We also had ALO with Mrs. Belkind. We did a 3-act math task called "Dotty". The students watched a video that showed 6 dots with an accompanying beep. The screen then goes black, and you hear 4 more beeps. They had to ask questions and figure out how many more dots there would be, and what pattern they would be in. This was the first complex math task we have done this year, and they did great! It was so cool to watch their thinking and have them explain their reasoning. We will be doing many more of these with Mrs. Belkind.
We also continued with our center work.
