Student Blogs

Welcome to Room 41's blog.  I am hoping to have the students add to this blog.  I will start it out with the hopes that we will have time to teach the students how to use it.

Only students whose parents have signed the media waiver will be able to participate in the student blog (including any photos taken in class).  We will not use last names in our blogs and plan on occasionally using photos.  If you have any questions or concerns about our blog, please don't hesitate to ask.

Homework for 1-31-2013

I told the students to go on for their homework in math tonight.  They were concerned that their parents would not believe them so I am posting it live for all the parents to see!  If they can't go on, then any form of math fact practice in multiplication or division will be great!

Always, complete their reading log in their best handwriting and grammar!

Tooth Experiment

My dentist at Image Dental donated 2 adult teeth to our classroom so we could do a little experiment on them.  Since we were learning about nutrition, I thought it would be a great opportunity for the students to see that drinking water is better for their teeth than drinking sugary soda.  I poured water in one cup and Coke into another cup.  I put a tooth in each cup and we left it in our classroom for a day.  We came in to find that the water had done nothing to the tooth.  It looked the same as it did before we put it in.  The tooth that was left in the Coke was brown and pieces were chi

Hershey Fraction Fun

As a culminating activity to our fraction unit, we read the Hershey Fraction book and each student received their very own chocolate bar.  We divided it into 12 equal parts.  The students first got to eat 1/12 of their bar.  We moved to 2/11 then 3/9.  Once they had eaten half of their bar we divided the 6 pieces in 3 equal groups and they were told to eat 1/3.  They were reducing fractions and didn't even realize it.  It was so much fun.  Some students couldn't even finish their chocolate bar.  They had trouble eating 12/12 or 1 whole!
