What's Going On in Room 108

It's been a while, bloggy friends!  I promise I'm trying hard to get back into things... but I have all my "life stuff" going on and they haven't settled down.  BUT I did manage to snag a few quick pics last week so I can show you what we've been doing...

We have an intervention time called "Success Time".  This past week, the groups were composed of kids who missed certain things on a math assessment.  Anyone who needed that specific intervention went to another classroom and I kept my kiddos who didn't need to be re-taught.  We worked on telling time and multiplication, which are things all of our 3rd graders need.

I started with a quick assessment from my 3rd grade "Math Snapshots" pack to see where everyone was at on their telling time to the minute.  We didn't do so hot, so I backed up to time to the 5-minute mark.  We did this classroom hunt, which the kiddos loved!  After we did the hunt, I gave a 2nd grade "Math Snapshot" for telling time to the 5 minute mark.  With the extra practice from the hunt, I only had three who I'll still be working with on their time!

We also played this multiplication game called "Catch 'Em".  The kiddos roll two dice, multiply the numbers and then "catch" the bug on their mat by crossing off that number.  I just printed the pages and put them in a sheet protector.  Then the kiddos use a dry erase marker.  You can get it for FREE by clicking the picture!

We have Monday off and Tuesday we report but not kids.  I have a student teacher starting on Tuesday and I'm so excited!

I hope you all have a great week... I'll try to get back soon!
