Nineteen out of twenty one homework notebooks signed.
We continued down the wonderful winding road that is percents. However, along the way we discovered that some of us have totally forgotten how to simplify fractions – eek! Onto science and a discussion of plate boundaries. It appears that soon Baja California will be somewhere up near Alaska, so start buying those winter coats. Oh, hang on, when I say soon I actually mean, soon in relation to the planet Earth. As far as you and I are concerned, it will be another 50 million years!
After recess I discovered that the sixth grade will be doing an assembly on January 31st. This will be a tragedy for Octavio, as he was hoping it would be on National Pie Day! It isn’t. After recess I also got to take the 2nd for a lesson. They now know that the moon is made of cheese! There I go again, pushing forward the boundaries of learning. To finish the day, we continued to read “Learning to Swim”. We also arrived at my all time favourite fact: every time you type in “Dead Sea” to Google, no matter where you go, you always end up with a picture of someone floating on their back, reading a newspaper. Genius!
English Word of the Day. Exqueetingly. Actually, this isn’t an English word at all. I might have been talking so fast that I mixed up exceedingly and exciting in my mouth and came out with exqueetingly. However, I don’t think anyone noticed, and I’m not sure that anyone reads this bit as it is not exqueetingly. [Can you see what I did there?]
- Maths: The questions in your homework diary. Let’s hope you took it home!
- Writing Assignment: the middle bit of a story (by Friday)
