#5thchat is for people interested in chatting about topics in education, especially as they relate to Grade 5. The goal is to connect people who enjoy learning & sharing, plus supporting & creating partnerships worldwide!
Writing is a form of expression. Students should be producers of their learning and writing is a great way to express that! Students can take that reading and write their own opinions on it and take a stance. Great skill to practice. #5thchat
To me writing in math is a display of understanding & showcasing of deeper knowledge. This can be strengthen w/ the help of sentence stems or a vocabulary word bank. If you can explain your thought process, you demonstrate you have truly learned #5thchat@LandrumMS
A3. I try to have my students argue or prove why their data is credible in labs very often...not always easy. Argumentative writing would force them to be critical of their own work and build grit!! @K_Nickel_LMS I need to get my Ss to do more of this! #5thchat
My students did a #PBL where they had to analyze the contents of energy drinks and present how it could affect the circulatory system. They had to write about their findings and present in front of the class. Very powerful lesson. #5thchat#teacherwin
