Twitter, Royals, and one HOT pitcher!

never thought I'd say this, but I am really enjoying using Twitter in the classroom!  It's a fast, easy way for me to show you what we are doing in class. The kids have started taking more of the pictures for me. Now I just need more parents to follow us on Twitter!  @tr_scott_205 

I post many of the pictures on Instagram too. If you are more comfortable with Instagram, you can follow us @tr_scott_205

Today we dressed in Royal Blue to support our KC Royals!

And tonight I had the chance to see Kayleigh play softball!  It was her first time pitching and she did awesome!  She struck 2 players out in one inning! I was so proud of her!

Rounding to nearest 10 and 100

This week in math we have been learning to round to the nearest 10 and 100.  We watched this YouTube video,  The kids had fun singing along!  Give your child a few random 2 and 3-digit numbers and see if they can round them for you! (ex: 34 rounds to 30, 257 rounds to 300)

Properties of Addition

We listened to this catchy song today.  Ask your child if he/she can name and give examples of the three properties of addition.

Germination experiment

We are using the scientific method to find out which seeds will germinate fastest. Will it be the corn, sunflower, radish, or pinto bean?  Do you have a hypothesis?  Stay tuned for the results.

Google Classroom

Last week we got enrolled in Google Classroom. Today we began writing personal narratives using the app. It's actually really neat because I can monitor their work at any time. We also worked on Google Presentations about Plant Parts.
