Happy New Year everybody! We just came back from vacation so it is a short week. On Wednesday we started a new math unit. The unit was extended multiplication facts. We also learned a little about Maine History to get ready for our field trip to the state capitol. For instance, we learned that the gold statue on the top of the dome is called "Lady Wisdom" and she holds a piece of Pine tree. Wednesday was also a special day because a new kid named Wes moved to Yarmouth and he is in our class. He's real cool!

Thursday we went to the state capitol and we went to the Maine State Museum to learn about Maine's heritage and culture. We had a great time and got to be out of school for almost the whole day. We saw artifacts from thousands of years ago when the Paleo Indians were in Maine. We also saw a lot of stuff about Maine's Industries.
When Friday came, we couldn't believe how short the week felt. For math we worked on math boxes and worked on computers. We did a Reader's Theater reading about Issac Newton and his three laws of motion and then we worked on our motion Knex cars and did more experimenting.We had time for a fun little team time at the end of the day. "Don't let the balloons fall!"
