A Big Bite

Hi Everyone!  Here is a link to this weekend's survey.  Please have it completed by Sunday night at 6:00.  Thanks!








The Haffenreffer Museum returned this week to talk about Native Americans of the Plains.  It was a lot of fun!  In math, we have begun a unit of study on measurement and made a paper robot called "Gallon Bot."  In reader's workshop we have started a new interactive read aloud called "The One and Only Ivan," by Katherine Applegate.  Click here to see the book trailer.  The next stop on our tour of the United States is the southeast region.  We all wish we had their warm weather. :)
The Leprechaun speeches were very creative and students were successful in convincing others to leave their pot of gold and look for another.  We have a short week ahead, but lots of learning to come!
Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Williams

A Big Bite


We have had a great week!  In math we are learning about fractions and decimals and will be taking a test on Friday.  Check out Mrs. Merten's blog for some fun math games involving fractions and decimals.  We have spent time working on research for the Washington D.C. project and are learning about clouds and wind in science.  We finished writing essays and have started working on poems with a mythological theme.  We read many fun myths this week and talked about different allusions from Greek mythology that are used in English, like; "If looks could kill," "That's a real Pandora's Box," and "He was a Titan of industry," to name a few.  We had great fun celebrating Read Across America Day.  #READREADREAD.  We also have modified our morning meeting/message to be more in line with Responsive Classroom philosophy while maintaining our own unique individuality. :)  As part of our end of the week wrap up, we have been having fun making yarn webs to share our ideas.  Ask your student about their "High, low, 'betcha didn't know."
Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Williams
