Sub Plans for Math and ELA PLT Day


Today I will be in a meeting that will teach me new ways to teach you math and English language arts. Your instructions are posted as follows:

Morning Work: Spelling City Your username and password are the same as your moodle login information. You should begin completing the assignments I have listed for you.

Math: During today’s lesson, you will be learning the difference between a right angle, an obtuse angle, and an acute angle. After you have created an anchor chart as a group, you will complete a scavenger hunt around the room to identify each angle. In a blog comment, submit an example of each angle that you find in the room for a total of three examples: right, obtuse, and acute. If you have extra time, design an electronic poster of acute, right, and obtuse angles using the Pages application on your Mac. You can pull in pictures from the safe search engines, and watch discovery education videos ABOUT ANGLES.

Reading: Today, you are going to be thinking about persuasive writing techniques that you can use to convince the United States Postal Service (USPS) that your nominee should be featured on the next stamp. Click here to read an article that demonstrates how to write a convincing argument. In complete sentences, leave a blog comment that tells me your opinion about uniforms. Leave another sentence that explains how the author affected your opinion with their writing? Finally, you may use the remainder of your time to find additional research on your person, and edit your movie.

Handwriting: Copy the last ten spelling words in cursive together: nerve, worm, thirsty, workout, earn, determine, commercial, whirlwind, worthwhile, and virtual.

During intervention today, you should use the links above to decide if you think we should have a snow day or not. Remember, if we have a snow day today, we will be making it up later this year.

After you have read both articles and stated your opinion, you may use our search engines to research how snow is formed and why some say we may have more snow in the south end of the county than the north.
