The Best Time in Class! 9-28-12

This week in science we were studying  Body Systems. We learned about how the body works in many different ways. One thing I learned from this week was that the circulatory system and the excretory systems both aid in removing waste from the body. I also learned that lungs are part of the respiratory. I have one more thing I want share which was that the excretory system includes which two organs which are the bladder and kidneys.
Also this week we did math workshop. Math workshop is these like centers we do for math. A couple of centers I love are Mucho Multiplication and compare cards. You play Mucho Multiplication by getting two small tubs of dice. Then you shake each tub and turn it over then you multiple the numbers together. After you complete the problem you check your answer with the calculator. The first person with the right answer gets a point. The team member with the most points at the end gets a pass of their choice.Compare cards are when you turn over two cards from each person and who ever has the biggest product of their two numbers gets all the cards from that hand.The one with the most cards at the end wins.

We are doing the Global Read Aloud. It starts in THREE days!We are reading The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. The field trip that we are going on goes with The One and Only Ivan. We are going to the Atlanta Zoo. We are taking a charter bus and it is going to be a lot of  fun.
