Class activities for Thursday, September 10

Today, each student created several personal goals, inspired by the speech President Obama gave to students on Tuesday. Later, student will publish their goals and progress at a class website to be created in the future.

We also created some goals for our class:

  • We will improve our STAR reading level every month, and achieve a year’s growth or more by the end of the year.
  • All students will pass the Multiplication and Division “Super Mad Minute” tests by the end of the year.
  • We will move our magnets no more than ten times each week.

Other activities we worked on:

  • Teams were given class jobs and we continued to practice class procedures.
  • Students were given “shuttle folders” today. Look for these plastic folders when students have papers, homework or notes to take home, or bring back to school.
  • We played People Bingo (PDF) to continue to get to know each other.

Behavior Update:

  • Yellow magnets: 2
  • Orange magnets: 0
  • Red magnets: 0
  • STAR Awards: 0
  • Magnets moved this week: 2

Check your student’s Personal and Social Growth grade at SnapGrades to see if your student moved their magnet. Need help with SnapGrades?
