Have a Wonderful Winter Break

With so many Monday snow days and Tuesday delayed openings, I feel like February was extremely short. Here are just a few highlights to share before we all venture to different parts of the globe on vacation:

  • We continued with our mathematical unit on fractions and learned about mixed numbers and improper fractions.
  • We used our multiplication and division skills to find a common denominator and to reduce a fraction to simplest form.
  • We solidified our speedy multiplication skills with a partner dice game.
  • Third and fourth collaborated to design health posters about smoking, exercise, healthy eating, seatbelt safety, texting and driving and drugs.
  • We researched online about our topic and synthesized and presented the information to our classmates.
  • We began rehearsing a western readers theater titled, Lightning Larry.
  • We wrapped up our electricity unit by designing, building and fully wiring a house to light up using a battery, bulbs and wires.
  • We finished reading chapters 10- 15 inĀ our suspenseful Holocaust novel, Number the Stars.
  • We continued typing our fantasy/dialogue stories in the computer lab.
  • We began sharing our amazing bowling pin biography projects.
