Tomorrow is Spirit Day! We will be wearing Red, Pink, and/or White.
We will be having a Review Spelling test tomorrow.
Registration packages are due tomorrow.
Summative project: Students are to create their own mechanism using at least one simple machine. Students are to create something that does not already exist and needs to have a purpose/function for humans. These are to be completed at home and on February 17 students will present their mechanism to the class. Students are also to complete the writing portion at home.
We began the day writing our homework in our agendas.
During UOI we did a Simple Machines Review. We first matched the name of the simple machine to the picture of an every day object. We then came up with our own example of each simple machine, drew it, and wrote the simple machine being represented.
After first recess and lunch, students had Math. We looked at a triangular prism, rectangular prism, and a square pyramid. We worked as a class to figure out the number of faces, edges, and vertices each shape has:

After first recess and lunch, students had Music.
When students returned, they completed their Simple Machines Review and then began working on a Simple Machines Flip Flap book where students will show their knowledge of our unit.

Students then worked on Valentine Word Work. Students completed a crossword puzzle and then needed to unscramble Valentine words.
