Blog post by Sadie                       

    This week was busy, super fun!
On Monday we went to the Portland Symphony to hear music focused on Tchaikovsky, it was so cool! Our school book fair also started on Monday along with it being Blake's birthday which we celebrated with a dance party. Tuesday arrived and we went on another field trip but this time we went to the Portland Art Museum and focused on Winslow Homer. We had great volunteers who were Charlotte's mom and Nicole's dad.
Science and Knex vehicles
    When Wednesday( hump day) came,  we started our "Motion and Design" science unit by trying to design cars that could move one hundred centimeters and be balanced, out of Knex. We talked about design and weight being important. On Thursday we went to art class and we used pictures of our favorite places in Maine to copy by painting in water color. We also completed our unit 2 math assessment and got ready for unit 3 by practicing our multiplication and division facts. Best of all, we started our president slide shows. We are designing slide shows to teach about a president but only using funny or unusual facts. It's been really funny!  Friday came fast and we had a chance to start typing our narrative pieces, work on our knex vehicles, and we earned another "Team Time" challenge. Our challenge was to build the tallest tower using graham crackers, raisins, pretzel sticks, a few marshmallows and whipped cream. We had two minutes to plan and five minutes to build and then measure the height. It was harder than we thought!  The whipped cream melts! This week was super fun!!!
