Thursday, January 7

DPA and CPR started our day today. We then did our weather watching update. Instead of the math test on multiplication we looked at another way of doing multiplication. It is called the lattice method. I felt that some students were really struggling with multiple digit multiplication and some students have had quite a bit of success with this method. See a link below to see how it is done. The test has been moved to Monday! Read aloud was before recess. After recess, we did an introduction into making your own country or micronation. The students then set about coming up with a name, passport and flag for their country. They will have more time to continue their work next class. After lunch, the proposals for the next passion project were handed out, however, we were quickly off to the ArtStarts presentation of Around the World with Boris. When the returned to class they had a little more time to start writing up their proposals. We will discuss due dates next time.
