What a crazy week!  We’ve been so busy and my students worked incredibly had this week!  I am so excited to highlight some of our accomplishments and hard work this week on this week’s Five for Friday link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

We’ve been hard at work preparing for our state science test!  We have only 4 teaching days left before our test (WOAH!!) and we’ve been covering tons of material each day.  The students had a lot of background knowledge about this concept so I used this pictorial input chart to review the “Reason for the Seasons” with them.  They loved doing a pictorial input chart and I’ll definitely have to get another one in my planning soon.  This is definitely my favorite GLAD strategy.

Please excuse how messy this chart is but this is the result of quick teaching to maximize review time!

We also had quite a lot of content to cover in math this week, including our mid-unit math test!  We’ve been learning all about multiplying fractions and we applied the order of operations to fraction equations this week.  I taught my students my favorite method for remembering the order of operations, PEMDAS.  I remember it as “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally” but there are many variations of this.
