In my attempt to stay on track with my blog, I've decided to take the plunge and join in Doodle Bug's weekly link party! I've enjoyed reading so many of your weekly updates that I thought I'd join in on the fun!
Yay for November! One of my favorite times of year!!! I love these cardboard letters I painted from JoAnn's last year that serve as a great reminder for what this season is all about.
On Monday my little mathletes and I reviewed arrays AND gained practice reading a multiplication chart. I downloaded this amazing hundred chart and Array Reader Tool from superteacherworksheets.com.... I am such a fan!
On Tuesday I took a deep breath and introduced the Distributive Property of Multiplication to my third graders. It went...wait for it.....AMAZINGLY! I'm so pleased how well they are grasping onto the concept. This was with the help of Melissa's amazing TPT product Distributive Doctors! You can read her post of how she used it in her classroom HERE.
On Wednesday we reviewed the 4 types of sentences, Statement (Declarative), Command (Imperative), Question (Interrogative), and Exclamatory. I'll share more on Monday with what text I used..but here is a picture of a chart students were filling out with colored sticky-notes writing examples of each type of sentence.
On Thursday we celebrated the 50th day of school by dressing 50s style. Here is my brief attempt at participating..giant daisy clip-on earrings from my gram, a gorgeous vintage pin from my collection, and a silk scarf. I'll admit right now..those earrings did not last long. Cheese -n- rice, those things HURT!
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!
