2) During Period 3, students who needed to complete the CAASP were in another class. So, I took the time to teach a little about slope. Then I logged students on to Polygraph Lines by Desmos.com. I was hoping to see some good vocabulary in the questions and was impressed by what I saw. They still have a ways to go, but were on task, interested, and working hard to apply their new vocabulary. Some of the inventive spelling is interesting.
3) Most students finished testing in another classroom during Periods 1-3, but some students need to finish testing. So, the most of the class had to read quietly for Periods 4, 5, & 6 while the others finished testing. They were amazing! So quiet.
