This short week we learned about fractions in Math and in Reading we did a text structures Study Island test. In Social Studies, we did a little packet about Abe Lincoln and after that we did a word search. Then, in Science, we did experiments with Gobstoppers. HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING!!!
In Math this week, we have been working on finding area and on Friday we took our Unit 2 test. In Reading, we have been working on finding context clues and finding what a word means by using context clues. In Social Studies, we are learning about the Civil War and now we have to do a project on someone from the Civil War. In Science, we have been working on our ecocolumns. In our ecocolumns, we have fish, snails, crickets, and isopods.
This week, in Reading, we learned about all 5 text structures. In Math,we learned about doubling, tripling, and halting. Also, in Writing, we were writing about Honus Wagner. Lastly, in Science, we are talking about our terrariums. They have snails and fish.
In Reading, we learned the differences between main idea and theme. Our trip also got cancelled, so we watched a movie called "Goosebumps." Also, if we want dot read, we could read in Mrs. McCabe's room.
In Social Studies, what we did was we got time to finish our map for coloring and if you were done you were allowed to read a book for AR.
In Science, we did a Scholastic book and we read it. We found a lot of things that we did not know like when you melt gummy bears they can turn into glass instead of buying the glass.
In Math class, we did a warm-up and also we did a test on units just like we had to do LxWxH=V, which means length times width times height and the v stands for volume.
