I'm back! It's amazing right? Monday, we studied ordering fractions and then had library. After recess, we did note-taking for our non fiction piece and got ready to put the research into paragraphs. We continued with our read-a-loud, Peter Nimble and we're almost done with it. It is a great book and I know everyone loves it! Finally, it's Tuesday and we learned how to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators. We continued with our non fiction research in the afternoon. 
Peeling bark for our wigwams
As Wednesday rolled around we learned all about probability  in math and why we would need to know about it for our future. Later in the afternoon, we did science and did the second to last lesson in our motion unit. We tested how a sail would help our vehicles move faster or cause friction and slow them down. As Thursday came, we got ready for the unit 7 math assessment that we had today. We did a lot of review and practice. At the end of the day, we had computer lab and worked on our typing skills and we also began typing our rough draft non fiction essays. Finally, today we did our math assessment which took a long time, too long! After lunch, we went to Mrs. Page-Redmans room and looked at the second graders' arctic projects. They did so great on their reports! At the end of the day we had our "Team Time" and got started making our little wigwams. Next week we will apply the birch bark. Very fun!  That's pretty much the highlights of our week.  Don't forget "Beach Day" on Monday and our field trip to Jillson's Farm on Tuesday.
Thanks for reading.
