Doodle Bugs Teaching for a peek at everyone else's week and some great ideas!
Here's a recap of my three day week:
Sally Ride (since in science the students are studying space). The kids also seemed to really like learning about the 2-Column Cornell Note Taking method. It really seemed to click for most of them! Now, students are ready to watch videos on their topics and take our grade wide Common Assessment.
Differentiated Informational Text Structures task cards. I wish I would have found these earlier! Our nonfiction unit is very heavy on text structures and how the structures give you information about a subject and helps you understand the topic. I plan on using these as an intervention for kids who still need help with this skill! They are fantastic! Worth every penny!
Does anyone else have any great note taking strategies they teach their students? Our fifth graders need lots of help deciding what's important!
