We played “Place Value Bingo” today! This is a great way for students to see the different ways to represent a number. We are learning that their a 5 ways numbers can be written. The 5 are: place value form, base10 model form, standard form, word form, and expanded notation. This is a concept we will continue to work on! We learned about acid rain in science lab today. We tested several liquids with litmus paper to test for acidic conditions. We learned that acid rain can effect animals, plants and buildings. We also watched a movie called, Auntie Litter.  This movie had 3 parts that taught us about the difference between garbage and trash, what it means to reuse and recycle, what litter is and what is a landfill. Students did have to answer questions on all three parts. We also had music today and the students are working hard for their performance on December 2nd. We read another chapter of The Courage of Sarah Noble. We are now on chapter 9. We are still working on when we capitalize letters. We made a flip book with example of names, geographical names, titles, and beginning sentences. We also wrote in our NaNoWriMo books. Larissa’s parents wrote an awesome letter telling us how awesome she is, but…we already knew that!!
