A Big Bite

Happy Halloween!Image result for halloween pumpkin

What an exciting few weeks in Room 23.  We have been learning so much and having so much fun!  We took a field trip to the library and everyone was able to learn all about the history of the library, the architecture make a craft and take out books!  It was wonderful to learn all about the opportunities that we have at the town library which is also the first library public in the United States!  
In math we finished a unit on basic multiplication and division facts and are almost finished with a unit on patterning.  We are done with the water cycle, scientific method and the microscope in science and will be starting the heredity unit this week.  Map skills are all done in Social Studies and we are moving on to Mexico!  We learned how to say "Hello, How are you, I am well, my name is and good-bye," in Spanish.  We will be celebrating the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) on Monday.  Our narratives are almost done in writer's workshop and we have finished the list poems.  Many poets are also done with their Haiku poems.  
We celebrated the book, Mr. Popper's Penguins, with Black and White Day!  We had black and white snacks, made Arctic Art with black construction paper and chalk, did penguin math and played Pictionary with vocabulary words.  It was so much fun!!! We didn't have time to finish the movie, March of the Penguins, but we will on Monday.
