Today was a super fun and exciting day! Today was the day we go to the rainbow bridge with a eco artist named Lee Tracy!
We had a tiring walk to the rainbow bridge where we wrote amazing poems and drew some beautiful drawings. We also dipped cloth in the river and pulled it up and dried it for Ms. Tracy’s curtain. We also had a delicious picnic style lunch in the park near by.
I think the message to this is to respect the environment and sustain all the good things we have in life.
Thank-you for tuning in and reading. See you in my next blog post!!!😎😎😎
In class we are learning about adding and subtracting fractions. Ms. Laura said we will make some cookies tomorrow. But first we had to double the recipe. The problem was that the recipe only served 3 people. We had to serve 6 people.We had to double everything on our math log or our note book. Lets talk about how fractions are used in the real world. For an easy example cooking. You need to measure and sometimes do some doubling. Here is a picture of my working out on the paper and my doubling.⬇
Lets fast forward until tomorrow. Yay! It is time to make some no bake cookie dough! This is how we make it with step by step photos!
First we start with 1/4 of a cup of unsalted butter in a bowl.
>Next, we add 1/4 of a cup of Granulated sugar and 1/4 of a cup of brown sugar and then beat it until the butter is super duper creamy. Really beat the butter up.
Now, we add 3/4 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Mix up again.
For the next step, add in 3/4 cup of flour and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Mix up until crumbly.
To wet the mixture, add 1/8 of a cup of applesauce, then mix well until it forms a cookie dough texture.
Finally, add some miniature chocolate chips. Fold it into the mixture.
Roll into balls and flatten like cookies. Put them in the refrigerator to chill. You can store them up to two days. They were soooooo yummy!

In class we are learning how to add and subtract common denominators. I knew how to solve this problem because Marissa gave Paulo 4/10 of a sweet fraction. Now Paulo has 4/10. Then Michael gave him 3/10. Now you take 3+4=7. So take the seven and add on a 10 so you get 7/10. That is how I figured it out.

We were learning about writing fantasy stories in class. We had to each right our own fantasy story. In my fantasy story, I am most proud of my climax because I used to think of really boring climaxes. Please read my story below!
Making this video helped me to learn multiplication better because I had to explain it out loud. I hope you enjoy the video!
Special thanks to Amber for helping me make this video.
