It was wonderful to get a couple of our assignments wrapped up today. Students had a chance to log in to our new blog site, Kidblog for the first time today. Each student typed up and published their first 100 Word Challenge. I will be linking these tonight so check out the 100 Word Challenge site over the weekend to see if ours are up and ready for comments.
Students also worked to complete their I Am poems. Many had a chance to work with a peer using a criteria sheet to get feedback. One comment that I heard consistently last year was, "Can we get peer feedback please?" Students saw first hand the value in having a second set of eyes review their work. They also value the judgement of their peers.

2) Math - 4 times tables
