This was a crazy week! On Monday we worked on a self-portrait drawing using symmetry. These will go on our cover of our portfolios. We also worked on typing our narratives. We looked for the conflict or problem in our read aloud and tested our knex vehicles for distance. Hurricane Sandy came on Tuesday and we got to stay home from school. When we came to school on Wednesday we worked on math facts and function machines.We also worked on our President slide shows.
As Thursday came we worked some more on are president research and we learned about Pascal's triangle and many of us are working on solving a very large triangle. Today we started our day with a writing assessment and then had more time to work on our slide shows to get ready for Tuesday. At the end of our day we had more fun with numbers. Mrs. Rollins taught us about "Palindromes." We decided as a class to work through all the numbers on a hundreds chart and figure out what numbers were a 1 step, 2 step, 3 step, 4 step, 5 step, and 6 step palindromes. We did discover that number 89 and 98 have more steps than 20. A few of us are still working the problem out. We ended the day with a concert for Mrs. Rollins. She wanted to hear how good we have gotten with our instruments.
