Super Daily Journal 1/25/12

How do you make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?  You have to get the steps in the right order or you might end up with a jar of peanut butter in the middle of your bread and a jar of jelly on top of that.  Pay attention to the sequence of events.  It’s very important!!! After all it can get a little sticky somethimes.

Did you know that writing a paragraph is like driving a train?  You have to start with the engine (your main idea). Then hook on your detail sentences.  Followed by the caboose. (your conclusion).  The sentences have to stay on the line and follow the engine.  And don’t forget to put a dent (indent) infront of the engine….  Sound hard????  Just remember, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!!!!!!   You can do it!!!!!!

You all looked crazy in your CAPS for COPS!!!!  What a fun way to say Thank YOU to OPD!!!  Thanks for your generous donations and support!!!  Super Heroes wear Super Caps!!!!!

Super Daily Journal – 1/9/12 Should I Compensate?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jacob!!!!  Hope you had a great day!!  Thanks for the Tootsie Pops!

And here’s a SHOUT OUT!!!!! to Sparetime Fun!!!!

Have you SAVED THE DAY for someone today?

Thanks for your generous donation and support to OPD during their time of loss!!!  Thank you OPD for keeping us safe!You are our true Super Heroes!!!!!!!


Today we learned a new subtraction strategy called compensation.  When you subtract 2 and 3 digit numbers check to see if you have a Big Bottom.  If the digit in the bottom number is bigger than the digit in the top number, you can compensate.  You compensate by making the top digit a 9.  Whatever you added to the top to get 9, you also have to add to the bottom digit.  Then proceed to subtract.  This makes subtraction easier without having to regroup.  It’s one of those cool math tricks!!!

Well, our Super Hero Snowflakes performed their magic and it actually snowed!!!!  We have real snow outside!!!!! Super Heroes save the day again!!!!!!

Today we studied our spelling words, read with our reading groups, (thank you Mrs. Webber for helping with reading groups, and used our new toolkits for Calendar Math.

 Do you know how many sides a hexagon has?  (the x in hex is a clue…) Do you know if a hexagon is a parallelogram?  Is it a quadrilateral?  What shape is this stop sign?

What is the name of this mystery shape????

If you know any of these answers, leave a comment below and tell us what you think.  Or just let us know what you learned today.

WOWZIE-WOOZIE!!!!!!!!! Can you believe the wind!!!!!!! It just about blew my socks off!!!!! It blew my mind and pretty much blew me away!!!! We all have a ton of wind tales to tell after today!!! (That’s for sure!!)

Actually – we DID get a lot of work done. Thanks for not “blowing your cool”!!!! (even in the dark)  But after lunch, we pretty much played games.  (Math games – so we were still learning.)  I think some of you are getting pretty good at Sets. (especially after today)

Super Daily Journal – Walking Zombies 11/16/11

Did you know a bus has a “danger zone”?  We learned about bus safety today!!!  We learned to stay out of the danger zone and always follow the directions of the bus driver.  We should never play in the road or around a bus.  We also learned how to use the emergency exit at the rear of the bus.  Move down the aisle like a TRAIN, then turn into a ZOMBIE.  That way your teacher can help you out of the bus!!!

Today was really the day we learned cursive A.  (Monday was actually O – Oh well)  Now we can write Ashlyn, Amnah, Addie, America and ANTARTICA!!!!

We picked up our Innisbrook orders in the cafeteria.  If you didn’t get yours, stop by the office and let them know.

Mrs. Bruner is really proud of us for being such good helpers for the sub yesterday!!!  We really are learning how to be amazing Super Heroes!!!

Be sure to leave a comment and tell us your favorite thing you learned today. 

Happy blogging:::::::::::::    

Love, Mrs. Bruner
