Our Class News from a Student's Point of View
Smith Family Farm by Cohen
Hi my name is Cohen. We went to Smith Family Farm. We saw animals. We did a corn maze and a bean maze. We learned that baby chicks are more likely to be born in the fall. Because in the summer it might be to hot and in the winter they might get a frees desese. The life cycle of a pumpkin. It starts out as a seed. Next it sprouts. Then the flower grows. Then it turns into a green pumpkin. Finally it turns into a orange pumpkin. That’s the life cycle of a pumpkin. It was a fun trip to Smith Family Farm.

We Are Learning...
In writing this week we discussed persuading others and what it means to have our own opinion. We had a few mini debates, which led to debate etiquette. We chose one debate topic that we were passionate about and made a web with reasons to back up our opinion. Next week, we will work on creating a strong lead in our opinion pieces.
This week in math we learned how to subtract 2 and 3 digit numbers. We worked in small groups looking at various ways we can solve these types of problems. Although we don't have assigned nightly homework, practicing math facts: both addition and subtraction, will help as math concepts get harder and harder! Thanks for your help and support from home! Next week and the week after Fall Break, we will continue digging in deeper and looking at more subtraction strategies we can use with 2 and 3 digit numbers!
