We worked with squares today and created all the rectangular arrays that we could think of for the number 24. We learned two interesting things! One, the perimeters are different, but the area is the same in each rectangle. Secondly we learned that 5, 7, and 9 are numbers we could not use to make rectangles for 24. We also shared blocks this morning and we are finding that we have to make sure everyone has an equal amount. We could not split these “leftovers” up, so sometimes you just have pieces that do not fit! We played jeopardy in science lab, and the questions were tough. We watched the Planet Earth DVD on Caves and saw a lot of erosion and crystals. We also read a book by Patricia Polacco called Pink and Say. We practiced writing for the MEAP test using this book with our Harriet Tubman book. We found that writing a reading response piece has several parts to it. We also received our NHS Buddy letters today! We are writing back to them and we get to meet them in the spring. The kids think this is soooooo cool! Lunch notices were sent home if you owed money.
