In reading we have been working on evaluating infographics. We learned that infographics include data and graphics. Students have been working on creating their infographic based on a topic of their choice. They have been researching their topic and creating a visual to go along with the information.
We have been working on infographics. That basically means we are showing information but on a graph or with pictures but u also can include words. We have done infographics on our personal resume and a topic of our choosing on Google Drawing. We also started sketch-noting. It is a way to take notes with pictures and words.

For Poetry Notebook we read a poem or a book and answer questions about the story or poem. This weeks was called Casey at Bat. It was about a boy that was really good a baseball and it was the last inning and his team was stuck with two outs and two people on base and he is up to bat. Last week we had a poem about a woman that changed the world in her own way. So that's what we are doing in poetry notebook.

In Math, we have been working on volume and capacity. Also, we are working a lot with 3D shapes and finding the area of 2D shapes & 3D shapes. For example, if there was a cube and the height, base and depth were 7 inches, your total volume would be 343 in3.

In social studies we are learning about Biztown. We’ve learned about the different types of checks and the different ways to pay such as checks, dollar bills, credit cards, debit cards, prepaid cards, and gift cards. When we go to Biztown which is in May, we will learn how to have a job, vote, and pay for different things. We also get money from our jobs and we can buy different stuff. So far social studies is great.

In P.E. we have been doing fitness testing. We did the pacer, sit ups, push ups and soon the mile. It has been lots of of fun. P.E is a very fun and relaxing.
In computers, we have been learning about and doing presentations on countries in the Winter Olympics and sports+athletes in the Winter Olympics. After you finish your research, you create a Blabberize ( moving mouth picture ) and voice / act like your athlete. You also make a stop-motion slideshow of your sport over a course of slides. This is what we have done in computers!

In Guidance right now we're choosing what we want to be when we grow up. We have to figure out how much you get paid. If you want to be a doctor we have to figure what our responsibilities will be when we get that job. We also have to do research on that job we want to do.
The Seven Habits
We are currently working on the seven habits. The first habit we are learning about is being Proactive. Being proactive is if you go with it or following the direction. On the other hand, if you be reactive, you blaming at other people if something goes wrong, or reacting to the situation. For example, your mom asks you to wash the dishes. If you are proactive, you will obey. But if you are Reactive, you will say something like this : “ do I have to? ” Next week, we are going to learn about habit two.
