As you may have heard, MCPS has been having some internet problems, and it's making it tricky for me to post some days, so please know I'll post when I can!
Yesterday we studied a very interesting photograph in the morning. The students are doing a really great job of making inferences based on what they know and clues they see in the photograph. We are working to discuss what we notice and what we are wondering about. It is so interesting to listen to how their little discussions progress and how they come to a better understanding based on what they are talking about with their partner, and also what they are overhearing. We are talking about symbols, so I chose this photograph with prayer flags at a Tibetan monastery. We had so much to talk about! Ask me to tell you about this photograph!
We are getting ready to take the MAP-P test, in fact we were going to take it today. We went over how they will respond on the Chromebooks to the questions that are asked. This test will give us a better idea of the math concepts the students know and where we need to instruct them next to build on what they already know. I am hoping to assess the class on Friday morning. Keep your fingers crossed our internet works!
We sorted names today using comparison circles. This gave us the opportunity to sort the names by two attributes. It also gave us the opportunity to read and hear our classmates names again since we are still working to learn everyone's name.
Have a nice evening!
