Dental Health

Poem: Overdues
Sight Words: this, what

Comprehension Strategy: This week we are learning about the strategy back up and reread. This is what we do when we don't understand what we read. "Back up and reread is one of those consistent strategies good reader use because it works. Once a reader backs up and reads the passage again they usually read it slower with more intentionality and focus, thus allowing their brain to absorb the meaning of what is read or the lack of reading."
© 2018 The Daily CafeThis week we practiced this strategy with a partner with leveled reading books. We also learned a catchy song to help us remember what to do when we don't understand what we read.

Accuracy: This week we learned words in the -est and -ell word families. We listened to our songs, wrote our lists, and on Wednesday we wrote the words using pictures from the google slides. On Thursday we did something new that was so fun! We used an app called Flipgrid with our ipad partner. This app allows students to record answers and it appear all together on a class grid. Students had 30 seconds to record as many words as they could that belong to the -est or -ell word families. They did great with this!

Vocabulary: This week students listened to the story "Just Going to the Dentist". While reading about how the little critter was nervous about seeing the dentist for his checkup students were able to hear and learn about the following words: numb, cavity, x-ray, braces, dentist, and check-up.

iPads: This week students worked at scanning QR codes about dental health. After scanning those codes they used a picture of a dentist in chatterpix to record 1-3 facts that they had learned.

The second round students used pic collage to write words in past word families (un and ug) and find pictures that matched each word. Here are some of their creations!

Writing: This week during Writer's Workshop students learned about verbs. We watched a video from Jack Hartman that gave us examples of action verbs. We then wrote all the verbs we could think of around our picture of Vicky Verb! Verbs are so important when writing informational books. We also learned how we can use science readers to get ideas and facts about a topic. Science readers can help us write information about our topic.

Math: This week students learned how to use lines to draw 2D shapes. The first day students started by connecting the dots to draw each shape, then we practiced drawing without the dots on our own with dry erase boards. We finished the week talking about how you can use shapes to create other shapes. We used picture cards as guidance as we made other shapes like a hexagon with triangles and trapezoids. This is now a math with someone choice during math.

Vocabulary: This week our word was line. Line is a straight mark.

Content: This week students learned about Dental Health. Throughout the week we read stories, and watched videos that taught us about ways to take care of our teeth. We even looked through grocery ads and cut out pictures of things that were good and bad for our teeth.

This year for Read Across America students were split into 5 small groups of 4-5 and rotated around the room listening to stories and working on a small activity that paired with each book. At each rotation students scanned the QR code with an ipad to listen to the story. Here were the rotations that were set up around the room:

Green Eggs and Ham: After listening to the story, students used ipads that were placed at that location to create rhyming words. Students used a picture of a green egg that was previously airdropped to them and used Pic Collage to then write rhyming words inside each egg.

Fox in Socks: After listening to the story, students used crayons to create/color silly designs on a sock printable.

Green Eggs and Ham: After listening to the story, students used ipads that were placed at that location to create rhyming words. Students used a picture of a green egg that was previously airdropped to them and used Pic Collage to then write rhyming words inside each egg.

Hop on Pop: While listening to the story students were able to enjoy some popcorn at this station. After the story was over, students grabbed the plastic popcorn container and sat in a circle. Students took turns passing the container and pulling out a "popcorn kernel" with an -op word on it. This is very similar to a game we play on Fridays called SNAP, so they knew the expectations with this activity.

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish: While listening to this story, students were able to grab a bag of colored goldfish crackers and eat. After the story students used a fishing pole (made of a yard stick, yarn, and a round magnet) to "fish" for shapes. Upon catching a fish students looked at the shape that was on the fish and named that 2D shape having the rest of the group practice drawing it on their dry erase boards.

The last rotation was listening to The Cat in the Hat. After listening students used Pic Collage to draw the cat's hat and write -at words on each stripe. 

SEL (Social Emotional Learning): Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

This week we talked a lot about integrity. Integrity means doing the right thing even when no one is watching. We started the week by making a chart and then watching a video of Howard B Wigglebottom about integrity. Then we read "Do Unto Otters". Later in the week we talked about different ways we don't show integrity. 

Reading: Students will...
-learn about bossy e.
-learn words in the -ate and -ake word families.
-review main idea. 

WritingStudents will...
-understand what gets a capital letter.
-learn how to use pebblego to get information for our writing.

MathStudents will...

ContentStudents will learn about Dr. Seuss and have lots of fun surrounding his funny, silly books.
