We will be beginning our new topic tomorrow after morning tea. I am looking forward to it! :)
We began practicing some multiplication facts this week, using marshmallows, fruit loops and tooth picks.
We read a book that had lots of idioms in it! We learnt that an idioms have meanings that can't be figured out by looking up the words in the dictionary. They have meanings that are understood by people who speak that language, but are very hard to understand for people who don't speak that language.
We have also been having a go at writing character descriptions. See if you can find a character description in one of your books at home. Write a sentence or two that you like, in your author notebooks.
