The kids warmed up their brains with a math factor review game. They had to combine strategy and good knowledge of multiplication facts to win the game.
We finished Level 1 in Hands On Equations and will be ready for the end of the Level assessment next week. We've also worked hard on the second set of verbal algebra problems. They did a great job with those!
Newspaper Article--We finally finished our 1880s style newspaper article. I saw some wonderful creativity, good writing, and quite a bit of humor in these articles. Love the wonderful voice in some of the the pieces!
Vocabulary--We learned to create an accordion book foldable today. It's kind of like a Jacob's Ladder puzzle. The kids used it to create a vocabulary definitions booklet. Can't wait to see the finished products!
Reading--We read another chapter in our novel, The Twenty-One Balloons. Professor Sherman has just started to share his amazing adventure with the crowd. Can't wait to hear what really happened next week!
We used the design process to modify a "Bunny Copter" in multiple ways to try to gain as much "Air Time" as we could when we launched them from the playscape. After multiple tests, we determined that the lighter copters stayed aloft the longest, and a light breeze helped too!
HW: Complete Vocab foldable with 4 words chosen from our class list. For each word: Write the definition, illustrate the word, use the word in a sentence. You can add another drawing or synonym/antonym or even example/nonexample, if you'd like.
So glad you're back,
