The Sidewalks in Haddonfield Need To Be Fixed!
By: Holly, Maddie, and George
This week in writing was scary, cool, and good for nature. The scary part was the writing test. We had 45 minutes to write our best narrative writing. Then edit and revise all in 45 minutes.We scored points on how well we did. The highest we could get 4 for every category. I think everyone was nervous but in the end it was not that bad. The good for nature part was the lorax project . We read the lorax then we went to the lorax website and pledged to help the environment We wrote a letter saying how we are already help the environment . And ways we can help the environment .We emailed the letters to the project and from now on we have to help protect the earth . That was our writing this week.

This week math was marvelous! In the beginning of the week we had a math test and timed test. On the test we were tested on area and perimeter. The area is the inside of the shape and the perimeter is the distance around the shape. Another skill we were tested on was parenthesis. We use parenthesis in math when there are three numbers and two numbers have parenthesis around them. You then add, multiply, subtract, or divide. We also learned about measuring in our new unit. We also learned about the metric system and US metric system. The metric s system is measured by kilometers, meters, and Celsius. The US metric system is measured by feet, miles, yard, and inches. Math was fantastic this week!
Earth Day Field Trip
By: Maya, Sophie, and AJ
Hey parents! We had a spectacular field trip to the Earth Day Fair this week. First, we got into groups then we met our chaperones. Then if was finally time for our LONG walk to the high school! When we got to the fair there was endless booths to see. For example, there was a booth about water and a booth about oil spoils.
Before we left for the fair, Ms. Salazar said, “at the end of the field trip we have to come back knowing three new facts. “ We all walked around the fair and got candy, cookies, and souvenirs. Some of the souvenirs were at the booths and they were bamboo necklaces and bracelets. When we were done at the fair we went to the park to have our lunch. Finally we walked back to the school. We had a great time at the Earth Day Fair!
Super Social Studies
By Will and Matthew
This week in Social Studies we shared our Flat Stanley letters. We heard about Flat Matthew, Jack, and AJ. Flat AJ’s cousin live on a boat! Jack’s Flat Stanley went to a yacht and Matthew’s went to a densely populated community, New York.
We learned about what is important in a community. A community is special because it has everything: needs and wants.
