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.

Today we went to science lab it was really fun. We did a project where we counted how many pennies it took to make the water spill out of the cup. We read a new story called Juggling and we did our vocabulary in our notebooks. In math we learned about factor strings. A factor string is a long version of how to solve problems. We went to art and learned how to do gesture drawings. Also we got sit wherever we wanted to at lunch. Then we got to play outside. Finally we got to talk to our friends at the end of the day.

August 29, 2008

It was Friday and we had lots of tests to do. Our first test was a reading test. The book was The Class President. We all had fun and the test pretty easy. The next test was a spelling test. There are twenty words but not as many questions on the test. Next we had a pop quiz in math. The math test was hard and easy. After we learned more about a prime number and a composite number we had a quiz. It was hard to learn at first but it clicked after a few minutes. Last we took a science quiz on the scientific method. We had to put the scientific method in the correct order of steps.

Today we had the best day! In science we made salad dressing. In math we took notes on divisible numbers. We reread “class president” in reading. We had art today. We were sketching. Then tomorrow we will have chorus auditions. We even got snow ball carrots.
