My article is about the things we did in class today. In science we talked about erosion adn made predictions about it. We read our textbook about it and read the directions to our science project.

In math, we did math boxes, which are math problems that are put together with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

In reading, we took our reading test, which is used to describe teh story. We also took our vocabulary test, which is a test that makes you think about what the words mean. We did the spelling writing test, which is when you have to write the whole word. Then we did our spelling bubble test, which means you have to bubble in which word is spelled incorrectly.

Before it was time to go home we went to see our reading buddies. We read a lot of books to our reading buddies. Oh sorry I forgot to tell you what our reading buddies are. They are 1st grades that you read to and then they read to you. Then we went to lab to do SuccessMaker. SuccessMaker is an online reading and math program. It tells teh principal if you are ready to go to the next level or not. If you are ready, the principal will make it harder. If not, the principal will make it easier.

Today in reading, we read our reading story with a buddy. Our story this week is called S.O.R. Losers. We used power teaching to review for out science vocabulary test and then played a quiz show boys against girls to get ready for our test.

We also did some FCAT review in reading out of our C.A.R.S. book. We read a couple of paragraphs and then answered some questions. Then, we went over all of our answers.

We went to PE for specials today and during PE we walked.

Well, that's pretty much it for today.

It’s was a nice sunny morning as I walked into Mrs. Blas classroom. The classroom was buzzing with normal morning activities in order to get ready for our day.

First, we listened to the morning announcement or as we like to say ENN. Then we checked homework and afterwards we did our multiplication speed rounds.

Next, took a multiplication test which was fairy easy. Later, that morning we worked on Lesson 2 in our science book. After, science we took out our reading books and read the story of the week. Following that we worked on reading super speed one thousand and believe me it’s fast.

Before we were able to go to lunch we had one more thing to do. So we took out a sharp pencil and did a pretest on what we knew about continents and oceans.

Finally time for lunch, but before I knew it lunch was over and it was time to go back to classroom to work in our math journal. Towards the end of the day we did dibbles testing which took up the rest of the afternoon. We all quickly packed up and left the class to go home. I walked out the classroom on my way to safely patrol I thought wow today went by really quickly.

Oh what a day in Mrs.Blas’ 5th grade class. Well today we did a science experiment called ocean in a bottle. The materials used were one water bottle, alcohol, food coloring, and paint thinner. Also we did a science worksheet about clouds. The cloud types were stratus clouds, cirrus clouds, cumulus clouds, and designer clouds.
In reading we read a book called juggling. It is about a kid that is really busy and his friend helps him. In math we learned about greatest common factor. An example is like if you had number 20------ 5,4,10,2,20,1 would be the factors and you have 15--------- 15,1,3,5 would be the factors. Then you find what number both of them have the same and which is the biggest. The answer would be 5. That’s what we did in Mrs.Blas’ 5th grade class.
