With the exception of the math test tomorrow, tomorrow really is going to be a fun day for my fourth graders.

We’re playing BINGO in the morning to review for the math test (because who doesn’t like playing games to study/review?). Then they have PE, where their current unit is line dancing (fun, I think).  Math test, then reading groups.  Lunch, then a QUICK science lesson (which is consists of nothing more than a game where they are figuring out which will complete the circuit).  Then we’re outside playing for half an hour, music, then going home.

I think it sounds like a pretty good Friday. :)

Things my students have written about magnetism

  • - A magnet is magnetic. I know this because.
  • - I predict magnetism will pass through liquid because water is in the air.
  • - I predict magnetism will pass through liquid because liquid is kinda like air. I mean it is light and can have the right distance.
  • - No. (in response to "write a conclusion summarizing your observations")
  • - I observed a magnet's force of attraction when: I was in class today.
  • - It is like spikes spiking up. (Describing iron filings around a magnet).
  • - It looks like fur that is going backwards. (Describing iron filings around a magnet)
  • - It looks like a spikey mohawk haircut. (Describing iron filings around a magnet)
  • - Attraction and repulsion are different. (in response to "What is the difference between attraction and repulsion?")
  • - If the distance gets bigger, the attraction will get bigger and smaller at the same time or disappear.
  • - The difference between them is that they are different. (Comparing the differences between the way the iron filings look over 2 magnets with like poles facing each other, and then with opposite poles facing each other)
  • Me: Without talking, raise your hand if you've seen the tv show "Glee"
  • *about half my reading group raises their hands*
  • Me: Ok, thank you. Put your hands back down. It's ok if you haven't seen it. Basically, every episode starts off with a quick recap of the last episode. Then, it says "and that's what happened on Glee." So, today before we begin reading, we're going to do a recap of chapters -
  • Student: *Raises her hand* Um, Miss Wilcox?
  • Me: What's up?
  • Student: It's "and that's what you missed on Glee," not "and that's what happened on Glee."


Cards Against Humanity is where you learn which of your friends are basic and which ones are sociopaths there is no in between
