Today we used Dot Candies to investigate fractions. We learned also figured out the range, mean, mode and median of the boxes we had in our classroom. We were amazed that they were all 6! It is not often the data is this easy to work with. In science we looked into how light can reflect and refract. We used our Michigan relief maps and added the great lakes and the Underground Railroad Routes. We continued to investigate folktales and fairy tales. Today we looked at another version of Cinderella. We then listed the items we needed to have to make it a Cinderella story. We worked on creating our own version of this tale. Some interesting ideas were shared. The weekely newsletter “Alford’s Articles” was sent home along with spelling words for this week. There was a note sent home aboutcool ideas you can do inthe summer through Genesee Parks and Rec.
