Finally Friday!


Since it's Friday, I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for:




This week we thoroughly enjoyed reading Nights of the Pufflings by Bruce McMillan:


After we read the book, we watched a short video clip that shows these adorable birds.  You can check it out here:

2.  We read about the Pilgrims and their trip from England.  It's really a miracle that they made it across the ocean in this type of ship:

 



3.  This week I had laryngitis on Wednesday and Thursday.  Luckily, today I have some of my voice back.  I got to become very creative with my interactive whiteboard.  I typed a lot, and the kids seemed to focus and "listen" better.  I was thinking that it was like closed-captioning.  We did quite a bit of review for our Social Studies quiz this way.  I typed the question; the student read the question and answered; then I typed the answer on the board.

I also found this site to be particularly helpful since I couldn't read to the kids.  Celebrities read well-known picture books.  I figured out how to add the closed-captioning so that the kids could read along.  Check it out:

We started learning our zero and one times multiplication facts.  We're also starting a new chapter in Math about symmetry and congruence since we finished the chapter on word problems.





We had a character assembly today.  Karim from our class received an award for showing respect, and he got his addition certificate on Xtramath.  He definitely had an amazing day.  Next month's character trait is citizenship. 


 
Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Having laryngitis makes teaching really hard! I tend to end up taking the days off because my laryngitis always comes with some sort of upper respitory infection. I love how you typed on the board to make it interactive! Would be hard to do in my first grade class, but I bet your 3rd graders loved it! Hope you're feeling better too. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
