The last 2 weeks have been busy. We started observing, we had buddies, and went on some nature walks . When we were observing we saw a giant lizard that we took a picture of. With our buddy we helped them make a M & M graph, then we got to eat the M & Ms !Walking on the nature walk we saw a cool toad.
This week has been a crazy week. In break Andrew built a base 10 block tower. We had our Unit 3 launch. For our launch we had some visitors who are Ms Fox, Mr Choi, Ms Ronzetti, and Jane Goodall. We saw a dead owl I think it is a barn owl. We also watched a basketball game with our buddy.

This week on Wednesday, we had Math Morning. Some of our parents came to our classroom. First we showed our parents what a number talk looked like in our class. We showed them how to decompose a rectangle. Then we played math games! There were 5 different games to choose from. I played 2 with my mom. I think Math Morning is fun and we should do it again.
The last 2 weeks had been very exciting. We did many activities and had some special events. Here are 3 of my favorite events.
The first thing I really liked was having the ice skating field trip. We did the field trip because we had a unit on force. I learned that when we push our body in ice skating it makes us go and friction makes us stop.
A second thing I enjoyed was tug of war. We did it because we were doing a scientific test. I learned that in tug of war we use the forces push and pull.
The third thing I liked was the ping pong team challenge. Our goal was to make a vehicle that can carry 2 ping pong balls that it can move by blowing.
This week, our classroom went through many changes! We got some sofas, we moved some desks, and we brought in some cushions. A yoga mat donated, and we have some tables that are different heights. I get the choice to sit where I want to be comfortable so I can DO MY BEST WORK!!!
I think our new seating is awesome. I think our new seating is comfortable.
I wonder if we can donate more cushions. I wonder if we can donate more sofas.
