I have included a few pictures from the learning this past week with captions to explain what was happening in the picture. A couple of these were also posted on Twitter. You are able to follow us @RoderickSchool to see what is happening in the moment, or you can also see what is posted on Twitter from the front page of the website as well.
Before we recap what has happened this past week, I wanted to share a few important dates coming up NEXT WEEK from 9/26/16-9/30/16
*PTO Fall Fundraiser! The information was sent home this past Monday and it is still in full swing!
*PICTURE DAY! (The picture forms will be sent home on Monday, September 26th!)
Delaney Picture Day - Thursday, September 29, 2016
Roderick Picture Day -Friday, September 30, 2016
And now, without further ado, here are some of the events and learning taking place this past week:
|Mrs. Kelley and her fourth graders talk about developing the characters in their writing and identifying internal and external traits.|
|Fifth graders brainstorm different chapter titles and come to a consensus in their groups to propose one chapter title that will succinctly summarize the main idea of the chapter.|
|Charts like these may look familiar from Open House! Writers Workshop follows a similar format each day, but there are different focus lessons, opportunities to write, and opportunities to confer with the teacher to continue to improve our writing.|
|This week, Dr. Cameron made visits to the classrooms to read to the students.|
|Sixth graders in Ms. White's class are using the Chromebooks to draft letters as she is individually conferencing with students.|
|Students in Mrs. Fownes' class are exploring how to create a mathematical expression from the words that are given such as "six more than twice Z" or "42 times B"...|
|...sometimes "acting it out" can help the students make the connections between the language that is used and how to represent the meaning algebraically.|
