We Have Beans!
Other science news........the snail pull will take place on Monday! We did complete our five days of tracking the location of the crayfish. We found that only crayfish #5 seemed to set up a territory. Every day we checked, #5 was in the far left hand corner, stuck between the house and the aquarium wall. The other four crayfish were found visiting at least three of the houses.
Mr. Hart's Class ~The kids have been working on multiplication. We have worked on and will continue to work on three and four digit by one digit multiplication. This week I introduced two by two digit multiplication using a variety of different strategies. Today I introduced the traditional method of multiplication and will spend next week continuing to practice this method. I also started giving the kids a fifty fact multiplication quiz each Friday. Today the quiz was on zero through five factors, our next quiz will include sixes and sevens. When we return from break in addition to continuing to work on multiplication we will begin learning how to divide.
Read Aloud ~ We finished Ruby Holler on Tuesday. It's always a let down when I finish that book. Now we're on to Because of Winn-Dixie. Another favorite!
