My New Favorite Site

You are going to love this! This new website Grabba_Beast is sooooo fun! You can build your own beast and then make wallpaper or an ecard with your creation. It's very similar to Build Your Wild Self. Here is a picture of the beast I created...

Have fun! I will add this link to my Just For Fun sidebar as well!

Hey kids!
This week, the kids were working on some chemistry experiments and we got to talking about the Diet Coke and Mentos experiment. This is the link to the video that we were discussing. I hope you like it!

Hi Grade Fives,

Yesterday in Math we were discussing how you can extend an increasing pattern. We used the real life example of doubling and tripling recipes to learn this strategy. Today you get to show me what you know!

You are going to find a recipe and double and triple all of the ingredients needed in that recipe.

Here are the steps to take:

1. Go to the website and search for an interesting recipe.

2. Print that recipe out.

3. Double and triple all of the ingredients on the recipe - you can just write on the page you printed.

4. Come back to the blog and answer this question: What is another way you could use extending patterns in real life?
