In math we continued practicing two digit subtraction with regrouping. We will do a little more review next week with addition and subtraction followed by an end of unit test.
For fun this week we made some super bowl predictions. Sorry to the New England Patriots because only one student in our class predicted they would win. I hope they are not "deflated."
With having had a snow day this week, our writing project fit in nicely. We wrote about what would make a "Super Snow Day."
In science we continued testing properties of our solids. This week we tested whether the solid would float or sink. It was very messy but some of the students were surprised to see which solids floated.
Finally, at the end of our week we met with our book buddies from 4th grade. We have been reading a book called The One and Only Ivan. It's about a gorilla who lives at a shopping mall and who is very lonely. We haven't gotten too far into the story but I have a sneaky feeling that he will triumph in the end.
