Our first snow day of the year made this week a little short, with less students Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
In Language arts we edited and added more to our secret rules story. Almost all the students have now finished their story, which I will be making into a book for our class.
We practiced a lot of long division in math this week, learning about the place value method. We were going to do our final quiz on Friday, but with the lack of people, I thought it best to postpone until next week, and get more practice in.
We started discussing the difference between fact and opinion today, talking about the importance of recognizing them. It is my lead in to propaganda and eventually smart internet searches, which we will discuss next week.
In Science we talked about how combining simple machines makes a complex machine. Then looked at some complex machines, and discussed how a Rube Goldberg machine works. We will be making our own Rube Goldberg machines next week, so bring in your supplies.
In art we started a winter night mosaic art project, which should be finished next week.
Curling forms went home this week, try to get them in fast, and don’t forget that they need indoor shoes! I will be sending reminders home in their agendas.
Have a good weekend, and see you Monday.
