Ethan Keener! This week, the writer of the week was the person who took the time to write the correct headings in their journals and always double checks to make sure his pages are labeled when he puts new information in them! Great job Ethan!
Who says math can’t be yummy? Today, students learned how to divide circles into equal parts of 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 12. We then chose the best way to divide a cookie cake. We cut it into 8 equal parts, and each student had to answer what part of the whole they were taking, and what fraction of the whole remained in order to win a piece! Luckily, we all earned our cake and ate it too!
Our writer of the week is Zoe Miner. Zoe earned this award because her science journal was correctly labeled, neat, and complete. Great job Zoe!
Drum roll please…Lillian Sharpless! This week, I checked through math journals to see who was really working hard to keep their journals up-to-date. Lillian Sharpless had a great table of contents and neat journal entries, making her the Writer of the Week!
When we talk about grammar, we usually need something to help spice things up a bit, so we searched the classic Green Eggs and Ham story for prepositional phrases. Would you believe we found 65 prepositions in the book!? We enjoyed trying some green eggs and ham of our own after working so hard to count all those propositions!
Each week we will have a class Writer of the Week. Our first Writer of the Week was Mr. Jonathan Chang. He won his award for having an excellently put-together reading journal with all page numbers, an accurate table of contents, and complete sentences! Way to go Jonathan!
