    This week our science unit included a chemical reaction with vinegar and baking soda.  We also used water and a filter for color separation. Lots of fun!  We are learning about the writing process; prewrite, rough draft, revise, edit. Each student has been writing a short piece using their own ideas, and are now editing and preparing a final copy. They have written beautiful color poems too. We have been subtracting, rounding off, and focusing on place value with math. The students have many strategies for adding double digit numbers. These include adding tens and ones, building a model, and rounding off to work with a friendly number.
