Math is Everywhere


Look around...we see and use math everywhere and every day!!!  We see and use math at the grocery store, on TV, looking out the window of a car, or at home. We use math adding scores when playing sports, paying money when  shopping, telling time, measuring for cooking, and doing so many other things! Write three or more sentences sharing how YOU see and  use math in your real life. Remember - use complete sentences and proper punctuation!  I am excited to see how you see and use math every day!!!

Flexibility


 This week we read The Book of Mistakes and discovered that the main character/artist was very FLEXIBLE!  
Flexibility is seeing and trying many possible actions within a task, and being open, or when one thing doesn't work you try a different way. When you are flexible, you may have to "change the plan" in an instant! The main character/artist  showed us flexibility when her mistakes become part of the picture. The artist's mistakes help change the pictures in important ways, make the picture better, and make the story more interesting. She was willing to try different ways of drawing with her mistakes. 


Please share specific examples of when you have been flexible.  Write 4 to 5 sentence and be sure to check for capitalization and punctuation.

Living History


I had a wonderful time listening to the fourth graders give their Living History speeches! As I was listening, my brain was surfing for new learning and fun facts. Also, I noticed that many of the famous people featured demonstrated many of the stances such as flexibility, persistence, empathy, resilience, and optimism that lead to their successes.

Please share your new learning, fun facts and/or thoughts about the important mindset stances of these famous people. Please write four to five complete sentences using correct capitalization and punctuation.
