A Big Bite

What a busy two weeks we have had!  We have been Rap stars, performing our Rap poems and we have been "writing the rainbow," as part of The Poem Farm's poetry project. Writer's Workshop has also been all about point of view, students have been writing "alternate versions," to a story that they read about a seal.  This is good practice for the upcoming MCAS tests after the break.

We have been working on measurement skills in math and we will take a test on Tuesday.  Also, we have begun Algebra by working on Hands On Equations.  Ask your child to tell you all about it, we are having so much fun!  You can also click here to learn more about this exciting Algebra program!
We have been enjoying The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate and are making great connections to non fiction as we study animal adaptations in science.  We made a flip book about Mt. Rushmore in social studies last week.  We really had to focus, follow directions and stay in the Green Zone in order to be successful with this hands on project.  PHEW!!! We will travel to the west coast next week as our travels around the USA continue.
Every day we have a morning meeting and pairs of students have taken turns leading the Thursday meeting.  Rory and Jake had us LAUGHING OUT LOUD with the greeting they had us use this past week.  Ask your student all about it, it was fun!!
We have been posting many photos and videos to Twitter!  check out our feed on the right to see what we have been up to!
