A Day in Room 11


I decided to dedicate this blog to answer the question, “what did you do today?” If your child is anything like any if mine they reply, “nothing.” As parents we know that they did a lot more than nothing but aren’t quite sure what “a lot more” actually is. So today I documented what a day in room 11 looks like. Enjoy!

All of our lessons and centers are designed around our daily objectives.

We begin our day with language arts. A few students needed to finish publishing their Diary of a Spider books.



Why did we write these books? We learned from a mentor text, The Diary of a Fly, about sequence, humor, and intertwining facts into a fictional narrative.



Other students were working on their personal narrative rough drafts in the writing center.


After language arts we had gym. Since the weather did not cooperate we held recess inside and just “Let it Go!”


Following lunch, we have our math lesson. Today we were multiplying 2 digit by 1 digit numbers.


Finally, we wrapped up our day reviewing for our social studies quiz on the NJ Social Studies Weekly Website.




As you can see we work extremely hard everyday! Make sure to stop by and check out our “scary smart skills” the next time you visit our school!
