No taxation without representation/Kahoot vs. Mr. Sapia!

Such a fun Friday!!

To end such a great math unit, students worked on creating tessellations of their own! Tessellations was a topic that was discussed in unit 3. A tessellation of a flat surface is the tiling of one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps Please see pictures below of students tessellations.

As we near the end of our Global read aloud, Mr. Sapia and I thought it would be fun to test our knowledge of the book. MISS GRAY’S CLASS VS. MR. SAPIA’s class through skype and kahoot!!! We skyped as we answered questions on the book through an awesome application called Kahoot. Kahoot is a classroom response system which creates an engaging learning space, through a game-based digital pedagogy. We tested the students on comprehension as well as vocabulary. Miss Gray’s class came through with the win!!! WAY TO GO!!!!

During social studies today, we had a very special guest. The King of England came!! He taxed the colonist (students) and took all their money (Hershey kisses!) for various, unfair reasons. It was hilarious to see the kids get so upset when their money was taken away. (They ended up getting it back at the end of the lesson :)) The focus of this lesson was “no taxation without representation” and get a better understanding on how the colonist felt when the parliament treated them this way.

Hope you enjoy the pictures and videos of our day! Have a wonderful weekend.

Ms. Gray
