In art this week we are doing two things at once.The first thing we’re doing is we put our names in the middle and we draw four of our favorite things and then color them.The next thing we are doing is weaving and we just started and my pattern for my weaving is red, yellow, blue, and green and other people are doing different patterns and everybody is excited for the weaving.
In music this week we were learning about the instrument families. The first family we learned about was the strings, we watched a video about the strings. Then we got to play all of the string instruments besides the harp and the double base. The next day we learned about the brass family. Then we we played all of the brass instruments. The next day we watched a video about the woodwinds. Then we got to look at the woodwind instruments. We also learned about the reeds that get the sound started. For reeds there is a single reed and a double reed , the single reed just sits there and you blow into a mouthpiece but a double reed you put it of the instrument and blow into it instead of a mouthpiece. Then we learned about the percussion family. So this week we learned about the instrument families.

Math- Mrs. DeLaPaz
This week we are working on factors. Factors are the numbers that you multiply to make a different number. We also learned about prime numbers. Prime numbers are when the only factors are 1 and that number. We know that every number at least has 1 and that number but again if it only has 1 and that number it’s prime.Thanks for reading this paragraph.
Math- Mrs. Busky
In Mrs. Busky’s Math class
In Mrs. Busky’s math class we talked about converting fractions into decimals and percents and talking about equivalent fractions like if it is ⅛ to find the decimal you do 1 divided by 8 to get 0.125 so you do 0.12 and you stop and round the five up to get 0.13 and you make it in the hundredths place so you can get percentage easier because percentage is out of 100 so the answer for percentage would be 13% or 12.5%. And you you can put the decimal in the thousandths place just you have to put a decimal in the percentage like 0.122 you would do 12.2% or you can just round the 2 up or down depending what number and for roundin you have to remember 4 or below you rounds down and 5 and higher you round up.
ScienceThis week in science we were building robots. They are like legos we got special books to build them. We got split up into groups of six to build them. There are four people in each group. I think it is hard to build the robot. We didn’t get the batteries yet that is what makes the robot work. That is what we did in Science this week by Ivie Aschenbrenner
In writing this week we discussed different types of adjectives and poems. The poems we did this week we're haiku and the who am I poem. Then we took the poems we did and but them on a google slideshow but we still have more poems to do. Also we learned about comparative and superlative adjectives. We did a couple sheets on them and practiced them a lot so we know what they mean and are. This week in writing was super fun and everyone learned a lot!By: Ashley

- Planted 13 trees in an American forest
- Adopted 5 acres of wildlife
- Remove 10,000 tons of carbon from the atmosphere
- Donated $2,000 to Make-A-Wish Illinois
Way to GO Conley!!!! We will continue to recycle these products for 3 more weeks and then start again in August.
