A Big Bite

The last two weeks have been busy and fun.  We finished our unit on fractions and decimals in math and everyone did a great job on the test.  We have started a new unit on measurement.  We are continuing to make progress in the weather unit by studying ocean currents, waves and tides.  We will be learning all about the jet stream and the many different types of wild weather events that occur in the atmosphere.  We are finishing our journey around the southeast and will be traveling to the Midwest next. Mrs. Silvia, of the Haffenreffer Museum,  came and told us all about the Native Americans of the Midwest.  It was so much fun!  We were able to try on clothes, hold artifacts and learn about the tribes through stories and pictures. In reader's workshop, we continued to track themes in The One and Only Ivan.  Everyone is LOVING this story.  We should finish next week and should be able to celebrate this book on Friday with an ALL Ivan ALL day celebration.  We will be ready to begin final copies of our expert pieces next week.  We successfully completed the first part of the Math and ELA PARCC tests.  we are all done with these trial tests until late May.  We have had the opportunity to Skype with several classrooms in the last two weeks; ask your child to tell you all about this fun experience.  It has been great to get outside for recess, spring is finally here!
