Monday, we worked on our tessellations and we prepared for our math test on percents, fractions, and decimals. After lunch, we worked on our Maine slide shows to enhance our nonfiction essay reports. Some new things Mrs. Rollins had us include in our slide shows were videos and animations. They are so cool! We also continued our poetry unit. So far we have learned to write metaphor poetry, simile, poetry, and are now working on personification. When we are finished with our poetry writing we will be having an underground "Beatnik Cafe Poetry Reading." Stay tuned!

Art was great! We wrapped our clay mugs and worked on our art portfolio. Friday arrived and everyone came into class a little excited about the lock-down drill. Annie's mom came in to teach us about Junior Achievement( A program that teaches kids about business in our world.) She explained what entrepeneurs were. We had music which was fun! Then, right after lunch we had the... lockdown drill! it was not a big deal and everyone except a few people talked and handled it great! The second graders came for a visit to our class in the afternoon and we shared our report writing and slide shows. It was a great week! Have a good weekend everyone!:)
