In math we started a measuring unit. We practiced measuring in inches, feet and yards. We had a "Measure Thon" on Friday. We used a puff ball and had four events, Blow, Toss, Flick and Kick.
We finished up our persuasive writing unit this week. The students wrote letters to various people about a change they wanted to see made either in our town or our school. Some of the topics included fixing potholes in the road, adding playground equipment to the athletic fields and bringing toys and games to school. One brave student actually wrote to me asking for no homework!!
We also started a new unit in science this week as well, Relationships in Habitats. The students were put into groups and given a habitat to research. They will be creating a model of their habitat followed by a slide show in the upcoming weeks.
We had another great assembly this week thanks to our Home and School Association. This one was from a wildlife rescue reserve. We met Crogan the crow and an owl and a scary one-eyed hawk. We learned the difference between a raptor and a non-raptor.
Stay cool this weekend!!
