Are you wondering what we did this week in Math? Reviewed coordinate points! We learned a new song to it. It goes: Hey class! Hey what? Are you ready? For what? To plot. Plot what? Coordinate points. Our hands are high, our feet are low and this is how we plot our points. Over and up, over and up, over and up, over and up. We also made our own points. Once Ms. Salazar checks them we will switch and try to figure our the shape. Coordinate grids are when you have two numbers. For example: (5,8) You would go over 5 then up 8. We made our own grids by first plotting dots like this. Ms Salazar said we could have a max of 13 points. That’s what we did in Math!
Have you ever wondered why Earth has light or why we have an atmosphere? Here are your answers. Gravity makes planets into a ball and atmosphere protects us from too much heat, but keeps heat in. But in class we shared what we know and what we want to know. We also made astronauts of ourselves to put badges on. Earth is the only planet with life, because it is the perfect distance from the sun, it has liquid water and an atmosphere. So it is the only planet that can have life. That is why Science is Super Super!

Have you ever been to Greenfield Hall? Well we have! When we were there we learned so much! We also had a lot of fun!! It was amazing.
At Greenfield Hall we learned that John Gill built the house for his second wife Elizabeth French. She live in Moorestown and John Gill wanted to marry her and she said “If you make this house look like the house I have in Moorestown I will marry you”. In the bedroom there was something call a Busybody. It was made for you to see out of the windows to see someone on the porch. If you didn’t want the person to come in the house you wouldn’t go downstairs and open the door. If you wanted them to come in you would run down the stairs and open the door. The beds were very, very different than ours. It had ropes to hold the bed up and the mattress was made out of a blanket but stuffed with feathers or hay or whatever was easy to find. We also made butter and corn bread that was delicious. Then we ate lunch in the field at Greenfield Hall. We had an awesome field trip and we hope you visit Greenfield Hall too!

It was SILENT………… The only sound was pages rustling……..
BUT KIDS WERE HAPPILY READING THEIR NEW CHAPTER BOOKS!
That’s right! In reading we got assigned new chapter books. We also reviewed reading isthinking. That means you make connections with the book while you're reading. We recorded our thinking on post-its. Then we stuck them in our books. Then, we did a fun activity!!! We learned about articles and did a whole packet. Articles are a/an. For example: You are an awesome girl. You put an if a vowel is after it. Otherwise you put an a. We had a rockin’ good time!
