Small Group Expectations
Each week, students rotate in their groups to different stations around the room. While students rotate, I meet with 1 group to work on reading comprehension.
1. Slip and Slot Book- Students need to complete everything in this book by Friday morning at 8:45 a.m. It includes:
-Cursive Letter Practice
2. Library- Students enjoy reading books of their choosing in our reading garden which they will record in their classroom reading log and answer questions in their response journal.
3. Keyboard Instruction- Students get to practice their typing skills on our classroom portable, battery powered, word-processing keyboards. This is a necessary skill students need in order to do many classroom assignments such as research on the internet, type up research papers, and take the Smarter Balanced Test at the end of the school year.
4. Mountain Math- Students work on 3rd grade math skills. This helps students solidify their knowledge on the math skills taught in 3rd grade. There are a total of 24 questions, but some questions may have up to 9 problems. The students are aware that they should have 5 problems done each day, so that the work is not overwhelming by the end of the week. If students are having a hard time completing the Mountain Math in the given time, they may work on it at home by going to the Mountain Math section and viewing the Mountain Math Board photo of the week.
