This week our behavior has been very good.  Many people have gotten 3 stickers each day!

We are learning about maps in Social Studies.   We made a map of our classroom.

Yesterday in PE we played Star Wars, or some people call it Jedi.

We started writing how-to pieces.  We are teaching people how to eat a mint.

In math we played a game called SKUNK.  It was a game of chance and practice adding with dice.  We worked with money all week.  We got a pretend dollar to buy something from the first grade store and we had to use math to figure out the change.  We got to keep the item we bought.

We had an amazing week!

This week we finished learning about liquids.

We filled another bucket and have 20 buckets full!  We also have been getting stickers for displaying expected behavior.  Our classroom has been much calmer.  The new red/green clips are helping us with our behavior.

School ended at 1:30 almost everyday this week for conferences.  We got to show our parents how we were doing.  We saw a video of ourselves reading in the conference.

We saw the fourth grade perform skits on hurtful behavior.

We got to vote for our favorite five pictures for the new playground.

We only got one PE because we got out of school early this week.

We had an amazing week!

This week we did an experiment with modeling clay and tried to find a way to make it float. We found that if our clay boats had holes they would sink.

We practiced for conferences which are next week!

We started a star student chart for recording our behaviors.

We are studying a new genre of the month, poetry.

We had an amazing week!
