By: Lily and Marley          


Mondays are always fun in this class! Here is this picture of when we were working on genius hour. These two girls are looking at each others topics and giving suggestions.
    Genius hour is a time for us to research a topic that we love. It’s one of the best parts of the day!


I love Genius Hour!!!
On Wednesday we did book clubs and it was so fun to talk about the books!IMG_3204.JPG

This group is reading Rules by Cynthia Lord


This group is reading The Watsons go to Birmingham - 1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis.


These girls are working on plot diagrams!


Plot diagrams are really helpful when summarizing a book or video.


On Thursday we made “helicopters” out of paper for our S.T.E.M (science, technology, engineering, and math) challenge.



We also finished Fish in a Tree.

Anne of Green Gables Review by Katie

 Anne of Green Gables

Review by Katie
     This book  is about a ten-year-old  orphan named Anne Shirley, who gets adopted by brother and sister, Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. Anne has a very wild imagination and her tongue talks for two!  She meets her bosom friend, Diana Barry and the two have many exciting adventures together. They especially like giving different places different names, like : Lake of shining waters, Idlewild, Lover’s Lane, and many more names. During class she is called carrots because of her hair, by Gilbert Blythe, and she breaks her slate over his head! Believe it or not she doesn’t talk to him for five years! This is a very good book  and  I would rate this book a million stars!

The One and Only Ivan Review by Emma

The One and Only Ivan
BY: Katherine Applegate
Review by Emma 

The One and Only Ivan by: Katherine Applegate is a book about a gorilla that lives in the mall  in a cage. He was raised by the mall owner and his wife. Know he lives in the mall with an elephant named Stella (who is getting a little old) There is a new elephant named Ruby who is younger and got trapped by some hunters. Ivan loves to paint. They want to go to a zoo where all of the other animals are. So that is all i am going to say about this book. You would like this book if you liked fantasy. This is also a true story. So dive into an adventure with Ivan and his friends and see what they are up to.
