Music - by Joey

Hi my name is Joey I am going to be talking about what we did in music this week. First on Monday, the concert day we practiced a little bit in the morning and then in the afternoon we practiced for three hours straight, well we got a break so that was good. It was fun watching Mrs.Turk destroy Mr. Shaefer, we were all laughing. Then, on Tuesday the upstairs kids had their concert. I had a lot of fun at the concert and hope you liked this passage about music see you next time!


Math - by Alyssa


This week in math we have been learning a lot about using partial quotients. Just letting you know, we use that method to divide. We have to divide decimals and whole numbers. Some are easier than others but that is okay because we are all smart either way. We also have to know what to do with the remainder if you have one. We could either ignore it,or change it into a fraction or decimal,or you could round the number up. On Wednesday we took our Math Map test. We were nervous that we had to take it but we were all happy when we had no math homework. After that we just started practicing more. I think overall we had a lot of fun. Until another time, BYE!
