A Big Bite

We had a cool and fun week. We wrapped up the Life Cycle unit in Science with the Heredity test. Our next unit will be weather. In Social Studies we began to learn about Canada by making Canadian flags and watching a power point on the provinces and territories in Canada. This went along with reader's workshop and our lessons on how to read non fiction. We also finished Macbeth. The class loved it! We decided that two of the many themes in this story were grief, and suffering from a guilty conscience. It was a rough ending, but we loved it. Mrs. Williams says that we will read more Shakespeare together this year. We finished chapter 4 in math and took a test. Next week will be full of fun activities having to do with Thanksgiving, mostly writing and our speeches are due on Tuesday. If you haven't brought in a wire hanger yet, don't forget to bring it on on Monday! Our week ended with a movie party to celebrate earning 30 parrots at our specials. We watched Toy Story 3. It was sad and funny at the same time. Mrs. W's free yoga class will be on Monday December 6th. Don't forget to sign up by having your parents email Mrs. Williams.
Have a great weekend!
