This week was a fun, exciting week!
In Homeroom we’ve been working on our Venn Diagrams. The Venn Diagrams help us get to know our classmates better by finding out our similarities and differences. We did this because this months key value is empathy. Empathy means putting yourself in other people’s shoes and feeling what they’re feeling.
In Math we learned how to multiply a decimal by a whole number. We also did sprints on subtraction; subtracting a whole number and subtracting a decimal.
In Science we we started our investigation, our focus question being will the size and shape affect how the balls will roll.
In ELA we are still reading Mr. Terupt, our classroom book. We are focusing on Narrative Writing, and strategies and writing tips that made a piece of narrative writing good. Some strategies are using paragraphs, including descriptive writing, and using dialogue.
In art we finished doing our shoe project. We been working on our shoes for last 3 weeks.
In gym we worked on the 4 corners workout and a fun tag game. The 4 corners workout is when we work on physical fitness. On one corner we work on trunk raises to work on core strength. On another corner we work on the equilateral bars to work on upper body strength. On the equilateral bars, we have to keep our body at a ninety degrees angle. On the third corner we work on tuck jumps; you have to keep your feet apart at shoulders width and jump your height. On the final corner we work on a plank.
