This week we painted cardboard pictures in Art.  We used the cardboard to make prints.

In Science we experimented with ice cubes.  One day we tried to melt the ice cube the fastest.  Some people were able to melt their ice cube in 48 seconds!  One day we watched and timed the melting of an ice cube on its own.  Today we will try to keep an ice cube from melting!

In math we worked on polygons.  We found out pyramids come to a point at the top, but cylinders do not.  Yesterday we played with symmetry.

In one reading group we put eggshells in soda to see what happens to our teeth if we do not brush them.

We had a nice week!

We dressed as our favorite book characters. We had a green snack on Wednesday. On Tuesday we wore crazy socks for Fox in Socks.  On Monday, we participated in Drop Everything and Read with the whole school.  On Thursday, we read with our buddies in the 5th grade.

All week long we had guest readers including teachers, parents and the principal!

We started a new unit in science on states of matter.

Some of us made paintings with cardboard in art.

We had a nice week!

This week we chose the manatee that we want to adopt.  We want to adopt Margarito.  He is missing his right flipper.

Some of the class played Tric-Trac in math.  We learned about measuring in centimeters.  We talked about quarters. 

We had a snow day on Wednesday.

We are learning about blends in Fundations.

One reading group is learning about snakes. 

We had a nice week.
