Our Blogger
Blog by Ian

Wow! We had an exciting week! On Monday we worked on turning prose into poetry. We also worked on reading and writing examples of personification. On Tuesday we went on a field  trip to Pineland Farms. We had a great time! We learned all about the cheese making process and how the cows are cared for. We got to see a lot of baby cute! The chickens were CRAZY! (see photos below)
Chalk Art
  We ended our day back at school dissecting flowers. We studied the parts of a flower and how they pollinate. When we were done, Mrs. Rollins took us outside to do chalk art on the wall. We drew our own garden. On Wednesday we went and saw the concert for chorus and we also saw the band play all kinds of different music. They were awesome! Thursday came quick and we went to the computer lab and typed our awesome poetry. We are preparing for our "Beatnik" celebration with poetry.  
We also started a new novel for readers workshop called The Seven Wonders Of Sassafras Springs. Before we started, Mrs.Rollins had us research the seven wonders of the Modern, Natural and Ancient world  so we could understand what a wonder is.  Mrs. Lowenstein came in again to do Junior Achievement with us and and we took our unit 10 math assessment. It was a great week!

Enjoying some reading
