We are also review math on pearson again to review what we are doing in 4th grade.We started this project called fraction Avenue.And they put fractions so we can figure out what we draw on/by the houses.For St.Patrick’s day we did something with lucky charms.We had to count how many oats there were and put them in them in groups of 3,5,and 10.We had to count how many marshmallows there were to!
Math- Mrs. Busky
During math this week we did many things. This is what we did on
MONDAY - We had our unit 7 test. When we were done with that we did some plotting points. If you don’t know what “plotting points” are, well you get a grid and you have to follow direction to where you put the dot and connect them. Then you just color it. When you are finished you can do Extra Math or Front row.
TUESDAY - We talked about our new Unit. We also reviewed fractions.
WEDNESDAY - We talked about how you get the perimeter to a 2D shape. We also watched an Mathantics video.
THURSDAY - We learned about the Area of a shape. Specifically we did it with rectangles and squares. To me at first it was confusing. We watched an Mathantics video as well. We also did guided math.
FRIDAY - We review everything that we did this week and what most people like that there is NO HOMEWORK ON FRIDAY. Everyone goes crazy that they hear that there is no homework. IT IS SO LOUD IN THERE.
HOMEWORK We did study links everyday except on Monday because we had a test and thursday we had a worksheet.
In science we learn about life sicles. Some life cycles were plants and animals.
We got to do games to know how the life cycles work. We also learned what they need like sun or water.By Christo
