Today students were given a Multiplying Decimals Word Problem worksheet with SIX problems on it. We did two of the problems together as a class. Students were asked to complete the remaining four problems in their small groups.
Today students were given a worksheet with 18 problems of multiplying decimals.
We did two example on the board together.
Students had 40 minutes of class time to work in their small groups and complete the expected problems. The worksheet was due by the end of the period.
Today I tried to continue our OBPP Presentation but due to several students' behavior I was unsuccessful.
I had to make it a silent period for the last (approx) 25 minutes of class. Students were then directed to write down the Seven Norms of Collaboration on a separate sheet of paper and provide two examples. This assignment was due at the end of the period.
*****Parents/Guardians***** Please ask your student if they were part of the problem or part of the solution in our class today. Today was an unhealthy environment for learning and several students were assigned detention after school to write reflections on their behavior choices. For those students that were part of the solution, they have an S or an O marked in PowerSchool for their Citizenship grade. For those that were part of the problem, they have an N or a U for their citizenship grade.
Today students were given a different worksheet on adding and subtracting decimals. Today, I did every problem with them as a whole group and explained EXACTLY what the expectation for showing their work means.
This assignment was collected at the end of the period.'
We finished early so we tried to watch a Bill Nye the Science Guy video (on Phase Change) but some students were very disruptive and we had to stop the video.
Students were given the entire class period to complete 12 adding and subtracting decimals problems. We did the first one on the board together after watching a 10 minute Math Antics video (during breakfast) on the content. The worksheet was due at the end of the period.
Students had a sub (Ms. Willard) today as I had to attend Science Collaboration. Students were given the entire period to work on setting three goals for the month. This activity should have only taken them about 20 minutes so I assigned "Silent Reading/Working" time for the remaining 25 minutes of class.
As you can see, students think it is appropriate to erase their assignments.
