This week we will have our chapter 6 test in math, which focuses on 3-digit addition and subtraction with and without regrouping (“borrowing”)! Here is a fun video we watched today that gives us a nice trick to remember that “if the number on top is SMALLER than below, it’s time to go with the regrouping flow” when we are subtracting.
Last week for art, we created beautiful art trees, inspired by an image I found by a quick Google search. We used water color paint on construction paper to create our multi-colored backgrounds, added our cut trees after the water color dried, and finally added “snow” to our pictures using tempura paint. The students made trees shaped in whatever style they wanted, and some students even added icicles! This might be my favorite art that we have done so far this year!

Happy New Year! Welcome back to school!
Though we had a long, rainy day, we took some time to gain some inspiration from Kid President (see video below) and set goals for ourselves for 2017. Let’s make it a great year!
