First, we read some of our novel. Our favorite robot "E" caught fire and Sammy's second-best friend put the fire out with his nerdy science knowledge! Sammy's father finished another Ninja Comic, so we're going to create our own Ninja Comics next week. We started the story planning today and will finish that and creation next week.
After that, we challenged our algebraic thinking with Hands On Equations Lesson 7. We learned to draw our solutions, in case we don't have pieces available. Hmm...sounds like good practice for Middle School, when they won't have manipulatives to solve algebra problems.
Finally, we used our convergent AND divergent thinking to create bracelets using Binary Code. The kids used our Binary Alphabet Chart and then chose colors to represent the 0s and 1s. The finished bracelets with their Initials in Binary form look great!
Until next time,
