At the Movies: The Lightning Thief

Today, many of us met to see The Lightning Thief. We all left the theater thinking how different it was from the book. Well here's your chance to sound off.
Which did you like better - the book or the movie? Why?
What parts were changed or in some cases, left out?
How did the characters change?
If you were making the movie, what would you have done?

Very Busy Day

Yesterday, in the back of the school we saw a Ringtail in our tree.

Today in class we met a teacher from China. She showed us her class blog and we showed her ours. school has over 7,000 students and they live there during the week. There were amazing pictures of the student performances.Unfortunately, the website was in Chinese but we were able to translate with Google Translator.Plus we might have a pen pal class in China.

In computers we had to get our own Spanish misson and get information and write about it and show pictures.We intend to make a Google map of El Camino Real.

In math we learned Expanded Notation and scientific notation so we can write large numbers using powers of 10.

We also watched a video from Punxsutawny about Groundhog Day and Punxsutawny Phil.Phil predicted six more weeks of winter. We'll see if he is correct.
