Week of October 1st, 2012

Hello students and families,

This past week we visited the L.A. Country Fair and had a great time. We even got to see a 1 day old baby calf!
Thank you to all of the parents who helped out as chaperones! We are so appreciative of your help!
Language Arts 
In Language Arts we are working on descriptive writing and using sensory details. We are currently writing a descriptive paragraph on our favorite place. We are also starting a new theme, "Give it All You've Got". We will be reading Selection 1, "Michelle Kwan: Heart of a Champion". The new spelling and vocabulary words are posted on the left side of the blog. To learn more visit: Michelle Kwan: Heart of a Champion

In math, we are starting to work on dividing numbers. Please visit the following videos for help with division. Remember, division is much more difficult if you do not know your multiplication facts, so practice them every night!
Division #1
Division #2
Division #3

Social Studies
We are currently studying Christopher Columbus' expedition to the Americas and his experience with the Taino people. Complete the quiz at the bottom of the blog on Christopher Columbus and the Taino.

Take a look at out Digestive System shirts!
