Our Week in Review by Student Journalist - Jake
In Science we learned about the Solar System. We watched a funny video for about 15-20 minutes before Mrs. Archambeau turned on our lunch music and we took off and went to recess. We spent 15 minutes outside then we went inside to eat lunch.
When we got back to the classroom we started math. We learned about expanded notation. After math we went to the library and checked out books. Everybody read their books for 5 minutes before we went straight to PE. In PE, we did fittness and cup stacking. After that, we went back to our classroom and read Harry Potter. And that was the end of the day for all of us.
The rest of the week we learned more about the solar system, practiced cursive, and read about Robeto Clemente & Satchel Paige. In Art we worked on semetry and asemetry. In music we sang the Presidents song to Yankee Doodle.
