This week we continued working on number bonds in math.

We made dinosaurs and put them in the periods they lived in.   All dinosaurs lived in the Mesozoic Period.  The Mesozoic Period is broken into the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous Periods.  We also learned that the Earth is made of layers.  Then we learned that the dinosaurs lived in the different periods because of the layer they were found in.

We published out first piece of writing for the world to see.

This week we finished reading My Father's Dragon.  The chapter on the lion was a good part.  Some people liked when the boy gave the crocodiles lollipops.  The boy gave the monkeys magnifying glasses to find the fleas on the gorilla.  At the end,  the crocodiles carried the animals down the river.  Some liked the part when the boars tried to find the invasion.  We liked when he rescued the dragon.  We liked that book.

In math we did counting.  It was fun to count out loud.

We had centers this week. We like using iPads.  We liked listening to Skippy John Jones.
