First we had French with Mlle. Jessica, you can check out her blog at

Math - today students continued our last unit of the year. We reviewed what mass means and then in groups we tested our hand at measuring (with a scale) and ordering objects based on their mass!

Language - today students listened to chapter 4 of our novel study and completed comprehension questions based on Magic Treehouse Afternoon on the amazon. 

The children are surprised to find that the rain forest isn't sunny but dark and damp. Peanut leaves the tree house, too. Jack's book explains how the creatures in the rain forest are camouflaged so they can't easily be detected. The children set off on an expedition to locate the second item that Morgan needs, although they don't know what it is. After they explore for some time, the silence is broken by the sound of a person walking through leaves. The sound makes birds fly away and lizards run up tree trunks. The book says that sound means that 30 million flesh-eating ants are marching through the leaves.

Annie spots the ants and tells her brother that they must hurry back to the tree house. When they encounter the Amazon River, Jack suggests that they wade a few feet into it so the ants can't attack them. Annie spies a hollowed out log that resembles a canoe, and they climb into it. Before the children can figure out what to use for paddles, they begin to float downriver in their makeshift canoe.

Inquiry into habitats - students worked on drawing a picture of what they think the Tropical Rainforest looks like. 

We ended our day by having gym class with Ms. Yustin, you can check out her blog at
