We returned from our two week break and got off to a good start, though today was more relaxed. Many students have traveled and are still dealing with the effects of jet lag.
In math, we used base ten blocks to show adding decimals in a conceptual manner. This was very quickly mastered and the students then spent the rest of the class period practicing this concept independently.
In science, we began the new unit called Earth and Sun. I had the students read pages 3-7 in the text book and answer the question on page 7.
