Today you practiced solving word problems with a partner using the app NearPod on the ipads. You did well working together and deciding whether you need to add or subtract to find the correct answer. Now it is your turn to practice solving word problems on your own! Read the question carefully to decide which operation you should use. Then, using precision, solve the problem on your scrap paper before entering the answer on the computer. Click here to begin!
Try and see how many of these important economics vocabulary words you know by clicking here! Once you are done we will discuss the words as a class. After our lesson together as a class, you are going to participate in a class conversation by using Padlet. Find your teacher's name and click on it to bring you to the correct page. If you are in Ms. Rose's class choose the class you attend specials with. Beard Hall Hellmann Kretschmann McGrath
Typing is a skill that you will need for the rest of your life! We need to get more familiar with the keyboard, which keys do what, and how to use our mouse! The next couple weeks we will be practicing all of these things. First we will review the keyboard. How do we type a question mark or an exclamation point? What is the difference between using shift or caps lock? After our class lesson, try putting a keyboard back together by visiting this fun site!
Sometimes games can really help us practice a skill! Choose from these typing games on ABCYa to practice your typing. I want to see you putting forth effort and trying not to "peck" like we talked about.
Not only do we need to know how to type, we also need to know how to navigate using our mouse. Microsoft Word is a program that we often use to type stories, research reports and more. We will be using this more as the year continues. One thing that is helpful when typing is using our cursor to see where we will begin typing. The cursor is a blinking line that shows where words will be inserted when you type. We are going to practice using our mouse and seeing the cursor by completing this ABCs of Me typing activity. You will write an adjective or a word that describes you, for each letter of the alphabet. You do not need to go in order, use your mouse to navigate to the letter you want and double check your cursor to see if you are in the right spot. We will save these to our H drive (lunch number).
Country Photostory Presentation
You have worked very hard in class to research a country around the world. You have found some wonderful information about that country! Now it is time to make a final presentation so you can share your research in a fun and engaging way! You will be using Culture Gram Kids Edition to find 4 photographs of the country you researched. You will be saving your photos to your H drive (lunch number) so we can access these when we need them. When picking which pictures you need, think of the research you did. One photo should be about the geography of your country(where is that country, what landforms there are), one photo should be about the food the people of that country eat, one photo should be about the culture (language, holidays etc) and the last photo should be about their daily life (sports they play, transportation, school). Once you have your four photos saved you will be creating your presentation using the program PhotoStory 3. For each photo you will need to type one fact. You will also be recording your voice to share even more information and adding music and transitions to make your presentation stand out! Here is an example of a PhotoStory I created about the United States. Yours will be similar, but with your photos and facts of course!
