This week we did a bio-cube. A bio-cube is a cube with your favorite subject like family/hobbies and more. Later today we will help our buddy class make one for themselves. They look like dice for a board game, maybe we can make up a game around them.
In math home work we did divisibile numbers. Numbers are divisible when they don't have a remainder. We learned some rules or tricks for dividing by 2 ,3 ,5 ,6, 9, and 10. We also learned the difference between prime and composite numbers.
On Monday we had Art and we did scratch-board. We used nails to scratch out symbols that show through on white paper.
Tuesday we had Computers and we played tinker-ball, practiced geography games and finished our avatars.
Wednesday we had P.E and we had free choice.

Thursday we had Music and we line danced.

Friday we had library.
We made ear diagrams to learn about the five senses. We are continuing to read Found and island of the Blue Dolphin

What we did in class today

Today we made avatars on yahoo! Check them out on room25online or twitter. The first geography test was today and most of us did very well.
We also read part of the Island of the Blue Dolphin by Scott O'Dell.
After recess we did a mathematics scavenger hunt in our
The last thing we learned today was about the five senses. The five senses are sight,hearing,smell,taste, and touch. But the main sense is the brain which controls the body.
Keep working on the fundraiser.

Welcome Back

I hope everyone had a great first day of school. We accomplished quite a bit. We learned about ourselves and our classmates. The collages that we made about science should be online soon.

This should be a great year. Our class has been selected to attend Starbase at Davis Monthan Airforce Base starting in October. This is a great program for teaching science to fifth graders. Check the calendar for the dates we will attend. In addition, we have lots of great math, social studies, reading and other activities planned. Remember to check the blog (and leave us your comments) to see what's going on in Room 25.

If you did not see the recommended supply list, click here.

So parents, there is a link on the right side to our homework calendar as well as the student's assignment book. Please check them if you have any questions. And for the students (and parents), how do you think it went today? Click the comment link below and leave your impressions. Remember to put your name in the box or we won't know who posted the comment. It was a great first day. See you tomorrow.
