We began the day writing our homework in our agendas and then continuing our letters to our pen pals in Illinois.
We then had physical education with Mr. Slyk.
When students returned, we dove into our new math unit: Linear Measurement, Area and Perimeter. We began with a discussion about standard and non-standard units. Nonstandard units of measure are objects such as erasers, paper clips, or toothpicks, that are not typically used to find length. Standard units of measurement: we usually use to measure the weight, length or capacity of objects using tools like rulers or meter sticks. The standard units that will be discussed during this unit are centimeters and meters. Today we focused on using non-standard units of measurement. We used paperclips, erasers, and pencils to measure objects of our choice. We noticed that we needed more paper clips when measuring (because they are smaller) and less pencils (because they are bigger).
After first recess and lunch, we continued our cultural doll presentations.
