A Peek at my Week 5/12-5/16

Linking up for a peek at my week with Mrs. Laffin's Laughings!

We are getting ready for are End of Grade tests. We are doing a lot of review using task cards and notes. We are super excited about working with a class of second graders this week though! On Thursdays the second graders went to the zoo, this week they have to write a report about an animal they saw. They are really struggling with sequencing and making their writing make sense. My kids are struggling with editing. A perfect match! Plus I get to spend some time with my favorite second grade teacher at my school!

More review for EOGs. Using task cards and games. Hopefully my kids can get long division under their belts and be confident in their work.

We have taught all of our science standards! During our normal science time we will be practicing for EOGs. My kids really struggle with not talking. So I made little packets using one of my favorite purchases from the big tpt sale (BTW everything I bought is my favorite purchase).
Grammar and Comprehension Snapshots BUNDLE- Weekly Assessm
So they will get their packet of either comprehension or grammar depending on the day we're working on. They will have a half hour to do the pages in the packet. If they finish early, they sit there silently doing nothing (just like on EOG day). If they don't finish in the time allowed, they still turn it in (just like EOG day). I really hope they get how important it is that on EOG day they must be silent and stay in their seats.

We are finishing writing our biographies and making our biodolls. I can not wait to see the finished product. Some of the kids have started making theirs and they are super cute! I forgot though to take pictures Friday, but as soon as I can remember this week I will take some pictures. When the whole project is done I will write up a blog post about the whole process!
