Five for Friday: October? What?!
"Hay Nativos" to introduce the Maya, Inca, and Aztecs! Love short informational (and catchy) Social Studies videos!
"Fakebook" activity in our clubs. The lesson was an absolute success! Our students were engaged and excited and applied so many higher level thinking skills... plus, there were so many creative hashtags my cheeks hurt by the end of class! #fifthgradehumoristhebest
During intervention, we've been really focusing on great reading strategies. We've been using the note card summary strategy and just this week we stepped up our summary writing. We used our Scholastic News magazines to prewrite and then compose a well written summary. To get started we used resources from Catherine Reed's Main Idea in a Bag the day before. Students did a fabulous job at transferring skills from her activity to a full length article!
