On Wednesday we first got a partner and did a little dance with him\her we did the same thing over and over to get use to it.On Thursday we started rotating and and having the boys spin the girls and the girls close their eyes and and the boys go forward and backwards so the girls feel if they had to go forward or backward.That’s my short story of what we did in gym this week Hope to see you soon.BYE

Math - by Angelo

Hello, my name is Angelo and I will tell you about math this week. On Monday, we made models for rounding numbers. On Tuesday, we did our personal measures. If you don’t understand what that means, here is all of the personal measures possible: finger width, palm length, joint length, finger stretch, great span, cubit, fathom, and natural yard. on Wednesday, we measured all of our great spans and used the data to fill in these landmarks: minimum, maximum, mode, and median. On thursday, we did mystery plots. We had to determine which set of data goes to which line plot. Welp, that’s all I have to tell you.

See ya! (◠﹏◠)
