Our pattern was aw.
We wrote spelling sentences. We took our spelling test today.

In math we did a hard math problem.
We solved a math problem for our conference. We made a fraction out of M & M’s. We worked on carrying and borrowing with triple digit numbers!

reading
We read a book called My Place in Space for a few days. We had to write about all the places we live in space. We wrote a story about space.

Science
We made rockets.
We played with space toys and had to predict how they would work in space. Then we watched a video of real astronauts playing with the same toys in space. It was amazing! Did you know the space shuttle is actually falling around earth? That makes things float!
We went in to the space shuttle room-
group 3 is blasting off today!
There names are Ashley .T.J JB JJ Davis
Amy Erin Kelsey. We also get to work “ in space” next week. Ask us about all the centers we will work on in the shuttle room! (We will use robotic arms, space maps, calculate our weight on planets, and lots more!
