## Writer's Workshop: Expert Books By Owen

This week in school in writing we got new partners. Mine is Jackson. We started expert books. I am writing about basketball. My topics are shooting, passing, defense, and stealing. We are including forces and details. For example, you need a lot of force to shoot. I can not wait to write more about basketball.

## Everyday Math 4: Unit 4 - Wrapping it up

This week in math we focused on measuring to the nearest inch and centimeter. Students used a "Foot Long Foot" as a reference tool after reading, How Big is A Foot? By Rolf Myller. Next week we will review measurement, time, and place value as we prepare for our end of unit assessment. Keep practicing addition and subtraction facts at home!

## Mr. Bissinger Guest Teacher in 2G ~ By Caroline

This week in school Mr. Bissinger taught Social Studies. We made posters with our writing partner. My writing partner was Emma. We chose something to write about by picking a paper out of a bag. I picked make a law. Everyone chose make a law, decide what to build, or spend money for services.
