Smile off!

We had such a great week this week! After reading the book "One of Those Days" by Amy Krause Rosenthal, we were inspired to write our own book, and measure our smiles. The book is about a whole bunch of terrible days, so our book is about a whole bunch of super awesome days! We want to try and remember that even if we are having a bad day, to try and stay positive.
Then we measured all of our smiles, and added them up to find out how big our classroom smile was. It is 154 cm. long! Ashton had the biggest smile measuring in at 9 cm. We have challenged room 11 to a smile off, and are hoping the whole school will get to do this awesome activity.

In Math we continue to work on patterns. We have looked at time, symmetry, and 2D shapes. We are also working in more focussed math fact groups.

In Science we investigated soil, and learned about the difference between humus and hummus. Next week we will collect several soil samples and look at the differences.

In Social Studies we focussed on rights, responsibilities, needs and wants. After looking at some images of children around the world who do not have their basic needs met, the class is interested in sponsoring a child from another country, in lieu of the Christmas gift I would usually purchase for them. So I will look in to this and have more details posted soon.

IMPORTANT DATES:
Tuesday, October 6       Assembly at 9 a.m     Early dismissal at 3:10
Thursday, October 8      Library books due
