In reading, we are working on story structure, such as characters, problems, solutions, main idea(theme), setting, and conclusion. We've also worked a lot in author's message.
In writing we have been working on writing stories called narratives. Our goal is to write these with characters, problem, solution, conclusion, author's message, and theme. This will make us better writers.
In math we have been working on multiplication and arrays. We have also been working on doubles to make it a little easier.
We did tops yesterday. We have to have balance to keep the top spinning we can't give up if it's hard. Today we did zoomers.
We spin tops to show stability and force.
Tops are more stable when they are spinning faster.
Tops will spin longer with the bigger disc on top of the smaller disc.
