Monday Notes: In the morning we wrote book reviews. We played a game with big numbers yesterday. We read numbers into the millions. We took a picture walk and talked about 16 Years in 16 Seconds. That will be our next podcast book. We had apples for snack. Thanks, PTO!
Wednesday Notes; We had social studies with Ms. Streib’s class. We learned about this question: What was Monroe County like before people lived here? We worked hard on our writing projects in the morning. We went to the “megapenny” project online during math. One billion pennies takes up a lot of space!
Friday Notes: We worked on book reports in the morning. After that we headed to the computer lab and did mini-research about bison, glaciers, passenger pigeons and Canada. After lunch, two speakers came to talk to us about staying “Tobacco Free.” During social studies, we went back in time, to Monroe County in 8,000 BC. We sent post cards home, telling everyone what we saw there. The post cards were FANTASTIC!

Power Point Book Review : Horrible Harry, Matthew Jackson, Star Wars
This is the story of a girl and her family. Her very big family. Now this girl is called Clarice Bean. She has two brothers and one sister. Clarice Bean likes getting into trouble because she wants to get some peace and quiet in her room! My favourite character is Karl Wrenbury because he is funny and is always getting into trouble.

Monday Notes: We had a fun, busy day. At Second Steps, we talked about using a “Stop and Think” strategy when we have problems with friends. We had a math test. We saw a praying mantis when we had extra recess.
Wednesday Notes: We had science in Mrs. Streib’s classroom. We made rubbings and we will be working on inventions. We talked about the election. Barack Obama is the “president elect.” He will be President in January.
Friday Notes: We read our Time For Kids magazine today and wrote about important articles. At computer lab, we listened to our podcast and worked on math skills. We had a pizza party at lunch time to celebrate all our hard podcasting work. We played a place value game in math and the class won and Ms. H. lost. In Science, we learned about famous inventions. We made penny rubbings too.
