This week we practicing drawing conclusions and finding the main and idea and details while reading. Students also wrote amazing shape poems this week! Our grammar focus was on possessive nouns.


We started our unit multiplying larger numbers this week. We practiced multiplying extended facts (50*300) and used it to help us play a game called multiplication wrestling and use a method called partial products. The class worked hard this week and did a great job!


Students created a working roller coaster this week! We also used Vex Kits to create cars this week. Great teamwork was evident as the groups completed the task. Then we did a lab to test the speed of the car at different heights on the ramp. We are going to analyze our data next week.


Music classes are getting into the holiday spirit! This week we played "Jolly Old St. Nicholas" on our recorders. Coming soon....a video performance on your class' haiku page!
