Today in English we looked at and commented on 5T’s blog. Unfortunately we can’t watch their videos on student log ins as they are blocked. So, we commented on posts with photos. We are just learning how to do this and it is a steep learning curve but the students are catching on. We are trying to post specific comments such as; what type of plane were you flying, were you scared, I’ve flown in a small plane before, etc. We are trying to avoid comments that are vague such as “cool” or “awesome” with no other feedback. I am trying to figure out how to put 5Ts blog on our blog roll but I’m having trouble. I would appreciate a comment with instructions!
The students also worked on their own blogs. We would really love comments from parents and friends so please click on class blogs on the right and then click on our blogs. Feedback really helps us to improve our writing by providing instrinsic motivation.
During math we practiced multiplication using the standard algorith. That’s the procedure we all learned when we were in school. In order to remember procedures we need to practice regularly. Some students brought work home. We will be working on multiplication and division for the next few days and then we will move onto fun fractions! I love fractions.
