Monday was totally AWESOME! In math we worked on turning fractions into decimals and percent. In Library Mrs. Clark gave us a book talk on a few new books. Later on in the day, we observed our vegetable plants that we planted last Friday.

For Science, we focused on how a tree absorbs minerals and water from the soil. We put celery stalks into water with blue or red dye and needed to wait until Thursday to observe the results. Oh and by the way... HAPPY A.C.E.S DAY!! Okay, it's Thursday. In Art we glazed are F.G. jugs that African slaves made. Also, we had computer lab and we finished our Maine research slide shows. In writing we start a poetry unit and Mrs. Rollins taught us about Metaphors. We tried writing our own metaphor poems. Ok, Friday! We learned about "Tessellation"(mixing Art and Math.)which was really fun! We spent most of the day making our own Tessellation pieces and trying our own art work. In music we learned about theme & variation. We also measured our vegetable gardens and ended our day with changing seats. The rest of Friday was GREAT!! p.s. thanks for reading the blog.
