3A: A Week at a Glance
week ending May 13, 2016
A Note from Mrs. Adams
Next Thursday is Open House from 6:30 - 8:00. We will have tons of student work on display in our hallway as well as in the classroom. We'd love for you to stop by! I'll be wandering the hallways and hope to see you!
Geometry Museum Project - Due June 3rd - Your child should be able to explain this project to you, but if you need any clarification, please feel free to reach out to me. Basically, it's a poster board of shapes. You'll use any materials you'd like to create shapes and label them. You can get creative and put the shapes into a scene (or you can just make individual shapes all over). Be sure to follow the guidelines (a copy of the guidelines are below).

First, Mrs. Adams and the class wrote an introduction for our story about Space Mountain (in Disney). Then we got with partners from our "partner phone". Each group wrote a middle and ending to the class story and then we shared them with the class. We used all the qualities of good writing... making movies in our mind, juicy words, transitions, details and more.
This was fun!

This phenomenal week was very 3-D, as in 3-D shapes. In school we learned about 3-D shapes. We needed to tell how many edges a 3-D shape has, how many faces a 3-D shape has, and how many vertices a shape has.
The face is the flat part of the shape. For example, a cube has 6 faces. The edges are the long parts of the shape where the two faces meet. The vertex is the point of the shape.
We had actual 3-D shapes that we could look at to help us figure out how many faces, edges, and vertices it has. That was helpful, because sometimes it's hard to tell when it is just a picture on paper.
