A Big Bite

It has been another busy week in room 23. We have finished chapter 3 in math and took the test on Friday. We also have been making good progress on the Tessellation project and on Friday we did a lot of Halloween math problems. We even solved a 6th grade logic puzzle. We spent two mornings in the technology lab, working on math facts and on the new Science unit. We read the Gene Scene and played a few games on the genetics site. In Social Studies, we are almost finished with our study of Mexico, and on Friday we made "God's eyes." On Monday we will learn about the Mexican Holiday, "Day of the Dead," and color masks. In Reader's Workshop, we have continued with our first interactive read aloud, Mr. Popper's Penguins. We are studying character traits, questioning, making predictions, answering open response questions and making connections to the literature. Tyler, Emily, Christina and Riley did great book talks this week. We are continuing to write our scary stories and will hopefully move to the publication stage next week. After the Math, English and Spelling tests, finishing Daily Geography, handwriting practice, Learning about Mexico's Art and Culture, finishing our Halloween Math activities, creating a coloring diorama and making God's Eyes, we celebrated Halloween with a "Party in a bag," with Mrs. Merten's class. It was a lot of fun. There were lots of great treats and eats, and Brenna shared pencils with everyone. Shaelin said it best to Mrs. Williams, she said, "Thanks for today!" You are welcome, Shae, and everyone else too!
Be safe on Sunday!!!
Nasir and Mrs. Williams
