I'm linking up with Jennifer at Mrs. Laffin's Laughings for A Peek at My Week.
Amanda Madden. The cake was a hit! We made it on a cloudy gloomy Thursday. Only one student did not love it. We also looked at some myths and wrote our own class myth to explain why we have recess. It was great!

Now for this week:
In literacy we are continuing to look at myths and legends - noting similarities and differences between the two. Then we are going to write our own myth or legend. They are pretty excited about it! The myths connect nicely to our social studies unit. Our curriculum changed so now Grade 4's study Ancient Civilizations from 3000 BCE-1500 CE - a huge period of time, right?! We are going to touch upon Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome... and focus in more detail on Medieval Times in preparation for our end of year field trip.
In math we are 'remembering' how to tell time and calculate elapsed time. I had to buy an analog clock for our classroom... At our new school, all of the clocks are digital. (What are your thoughts about analog time? At my children's homes all of the clocks and watches are digital.)
In science we are finishing up our unit on Sound. We rotated through our stations last week.
Now, here's for the best part! My iPhone has been having trouble taking non-blurry photos lately. Thanks to Apple Care, a brand new iPhone will be delivered to my door tomorrow or Tuesday. So I should be able to finally post good photos again. Phew!
