Daily Five - Students will use this class time to work on their speeches, students will have time to conference with me. - Students are asked to please bring their speech back and forth each day in order for me to monitor and correct. Students at this point should have completed their speech and now are on to memorizing their speech and adding actions/emphasis. 
- students practiced today saying their speech in front of the class. At this time speeches should be completed. This is to help them gain confidence for the day of! 

Math Reflection 
Students worked on reading and interpreting data in tally chart format. Students then took the data and placed it on their own bar graph. 

Today students continued their data management unit. Students worked in partners on learning greater than and less than by playing a dice game. Each student took a turn rolling and recording their number. Students would have to decide if their number was greater or less than their partner's. 

Inquiry into Language

students were told to imagine life without Thomas Edison's invention of the light bulb! Students then wrote a journal response to this.

Inquiry into Inventions 
Today students learned that Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. They were given pictures of telephones from the 1800s on to 2015. Each picture was labeled with the year it came out/was used. Students were asked to create a telephone timeline in their table groups.

We also looked at some "old" telephones ={

We ended our day by having gym class with Ms. Yustin, you can check out her blog at
