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."
