Minute to Win It!

The video is finally done!!!  (guess what I have been doing all afternoon...)

-Miss K  :)

Pictures from Friday!

You have some major talent kiddos!  ABC- Always be Creative!!!!

-Miss K  :)



We began triangles yesterday and continued today.  Tonight's homework is the area worksheet titled "More Area Problems."  I also gave you a copy of tomorrow's assignment since the day might be a little crazy with the  supplemental CMTs.  Feel free to start working on it if you have the time and patience!  We will work on it tomorrow.

Have a happy Tuesday!

She's scared, but she does it!!!

This fourth grade girl was nervous about a big new ski jump, but she did it and really celebrated after she completed it.  NEVER let your fears keep you from all that you can be or from the adventures of life!

Starting Geometry (again)

Thanks for your participation in today's discussion of Geometry and watching the Mythbusters "Lead Balloon excerpts!

In case you don't know who Led Zeppelin is (they were mentioned in the Mythbusters clip)...  Here's a picture.

There is no homework tonight and we will be getting creative tomorrow in class, so have a nice relaxing night.

If you are off to see the Midnight show of The Hunger Games, enjoy, but don't tell me ANYTHING!  I plan to see it this weekend!

Prognosis Test Today!

I know it was difficult...

I know it wasn't fun...

I know it was confusing...

But, IT'S DONE!!!

Monsters Inc. is all done!


I hope you enjoyed watching the movie yesterday and today!  I know that I did! (All four times!)

As you saw from the notes that went home, we will have a prognosis test tomorrow.  There isn't any studying or preparation that you need to do for this test other than come in well rested and ready to show off what you know.  If you take your time and do your best work, I will get the best picture of what your strengths are!  Use this as an opportunity to show off!  :)

(problems may be significantly harder than this one tomorrow)

Have a great afternoon and evening!  Enjoy the beautiful weather!''

Benchmark and Fun

Nice job on the benchmarks today everyone!

If you enjoyed playing Red Remover, I suggest check it out on Hooda Math along with Sugar, Sugar, and the other physics games, logic games and building games that they offer!

Have a great weekend!  Monday should be a fun day! ;)

Here's a hint...  Leave your guesses in the comments!

-Miss K  :)

UPDATE:  The hint explained...  They are the actors that play Sully and Mike in Monsters, Inc.

It's been a while...

I forgot to post on Monday and was out on Tuesday so I haven't posted in quite some time!!!

Tonight's homework is to just enjoy the day!  You may or may not know that today is Pi day, also Albert Einstein's birthday.  Click the links to learn a little bit about each of them!  We aren't doing an official Pi day activity, but I have some fun things planned for the next few days though.  You will see when you get here each day!

I'm a big fan of Albert Einstein, so here are a few quotes from this genius of a man...

Albert Einstein Quotes

He was also a goofball with awesome hair!

See...  I'm not the only mathematician with crazy frizzy hair!!!  Imagine what that would look like illuminated by the Smart Board!!!

Have a great night!  Stories in class tomorrow!
