"Gold fever - all over the place. Gold fever - a terrible case!" We are very excited to perform our play, "Gold Dust or Bust" next week. We are performing our dress rehearsal for a couple of classes on Tuesday afternoon, so please make sure your child brings his/her costume on Tuesday. The more western, the better - all cowboys and cowgirls welcome! But, the costume could be as simple as a pair of jeans, a white shirt, and a bandana (many students have already brought in many bandanas and hats - and I have a few extra, so don't worry if you don't have one!).
We hope to see you in the auditorium on Wednesday morning for the performance. We will start at 9 am, so try to come a few minutes before.
I added a few pictures to the website of our bouncy ball math activity. During our last science class with Ms. Michelle, we learned about polymers and monomers and made bouncy balls. Since one of the Math Common Core Standards involves fractions on a line plot, we used our homemade balls to collect some data about how high the balls would bounce. Yesterday in class, we measured out 8-feet bounce markers. We held our arms perpendicular to our bodies and let the balls drop. We made a line plot to display and interpret our data set.
This week, we will continue to read By the Great Horn Spoon!, and the spelling and vocabulary words will come from the book.
Enjoy the long weekend, and I will see you Wednesday!
