YES HERALD 1/16/15

This Week's Bloggers:  Mia and Jack (and Izzy)

Math

In geometry, we're learning about polygons. These are multi-sided closed shapes including hexagons, squares and triangles. We are  also studying the angles inside these shapes.
Parent quiz:
Which is smallest, Acute, Right or Obtuse angle?
Your answer___________

We also had Math Exploiration with Mrs. Sullivan, Dr. MacVane and Mrs. Reich.  Thanks moms for teaching us how to make and measure shapes with blocks.  

WRITING

In honor off Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday, we read the book Martin's Big Words and we wrote thank you letters, thanking him for his contributions to the civil rights movement.  





READING

We're reading From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, by E. l. Konigsburg. We LOVE this book.


SCIENCE

In our Geography unit this week, each of us picked a country to showcase in a slide show presentation.  Mia chose New Zealand because she likes Kiwis. Jack picked Columbia, just because.


IN OTHER NEWS....

SICKNESS STRIKES!! Mr. Abbott was out sick for 3  days this week with the flu.  Mrs. Clifford and Mrs Vogel substituted.  They were great but we are really happy Mr. Abbott is back.
Seven students, a third of the class, were out sick Friday.  We hope Ben, Colter, Riley, Samantha, Michael, Ella, and Jillian all feel better soon. 

SPY TIME. To wrap up our detective unit, Detective Bianchini came in to talk with us about what it takes to be a real detective. Can you sleuth out how we got him yo come visit?









REMINDER.: MONDAY IS MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY.  DON'T SEND US TO SCHOOL---
