This week we started a new novel, "Woods Runner." This novel is historical fiction based during the Revolutionary War. This novel is written by Gary Paulson, and the students are already findings similarities in the way he writes. Our main character is a 13 year old boy named Samuel who is searching for his parents.
This week we have been working on division, measuring and drawing angles. The students have been using protractors to measure angles. We are continuing to review long division as this has been a difficult concept for many of them. I am including a couple of different links they can use to practice at home.
This afternoon the Olivet Nursing students came to do a presentation on germs in the classroom. The students were able to play with some items filled with "germs." Then the students were instructed to wash their hands. Finally, the Nursing students shined a black light to show where all the "germs" still were.
