We also read one a book called The Ugly Pumpkin. The book was about a pumpkin that looked different from the other pumpkins and was treated unfairly because of it. In the end, it turned out that he was a squash and he found other squashes who welcomed him. The students created their own ugly pumpkins and wrote about a time when they felt "squashed."
My favorite activity this week was asking the students what they thought I should be for Halloween and why. A few suggestions were a monkey (because she likes monkeys), bat girl (because she's cool) and an angel (because she already is one!)
In math this week we starting looking more closely at numbers and different ways to represent numbers. We wrote numbers in expanded form and number form. Then we made models for numbers using drawings like base 10 blocks.
We finished up our community unit is social studies with an assessment this week. Look for that to come next week to be signed and returned. In science we continued "rolling" using cups down our ramps. We had challenges like the "park the car" challenge and the "fall on your face" challenge.
You may have heard that there are some funny videos out there of the students. If you would like to see the links, email me and I will forward them to you!!
Here's a good one for you to see... Mrs. Wells is Hungry!!
