We visited the computer lab for the first time as a class today. Ms. Newberry explained computer room etiquette and the students learned how to log on to their computers. They will begin creating Powerpoint slide shows about shapes tomorrow. This is a multi-step project that coincides with our next unit in math: geometry and fractions.
The brassica plants continue to grow. The boys and girls used their rulers to measure the height of their plants in centimeters They recorded this data and other observations in their research logs.. Ask your child how tall his/her plants were today!
