Weekly Updates

This week we studied a different culture through the story I Love Saturdays y domingos. The students compared and contrasted family members, worked on main idea and details, comparative adjectives, and homophones. The test scores this week were awesome! In science we finished our basic robot. Next week we will drive them and add them to save the animals. In writing we added to our poetry portfolio by writing two poems with a certain amount of syllables. It was a great week!

Music

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

Math Delapaz

By: Kailyn

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.

Science

Science

This 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

Writing

Writing




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!
