Today we began a new unit of geometry! First, in order to assess prior knowledge, the students took a pre-assessment. We talked about plane and solid shapes (2-D vs. 3-D). What are the differences between the two? Later, we did an interactive "shape hunt" on the whiteboards.
Students had library today.
In science, we needed to review for our space test that will be on Wednesday! First, the students made a list of all of everything that they learned about in this unit while talking to a partner. We were amazed with the specifics that they remembered. My cooperating teacher and I were very impressed!
Students got new spelling words today and they practiced those today.
In writing, the student did free writing and my cooperating teacher and I met with guided reading groups.
