Well, we heard a bit about him yesterday, but today...HOMER (our Elf) arrived and do you know where he was?!?  Hanging from the light in our room!  Silly, silly elf....but he kept a close watch on everyone today and lemme tell you what, his report to Mr. Andes and Santa tonight will not be too sensational.  We were chaaaaaattttty and our behavior chart was lit up like a pack of Skittles!  I do wonder what mischeif he'll be into tonight...he was saying something about the state puzzle the other day come to think of it...

Hilarious Homer!
SHOUT-OUTS today to JULIA and BECCA for earning their sundaes for mastering ALL of their multiplication facts!!!  We are so proud of you girls!!!!  They enjoyed their sundaes with EVERYTHING on top and we watched in jealously as they devoured almost every last morsel!  Caelan earned his 12 scoop today so he'll be having his sundae tomorrow!  YAY CAELAN!  And CONGRATS Becca and Julia!!!

Julia getting some whip cream to the face!!!

Beautiful Becca biting into THAT bodacious bohemeth!

We worked on division by using manipulatives and pictures to break a DIVIDEND, by a DIVISOR into groups...and find the number in each group (the QUOTIENT).  We first played our multiplication "I have, who has...?" game to warm-up and then finished our "Picture It!" division displays from yesterday.  Next, we worked on those division terms such as dividend, quotient, and divisor and then used a grouping sheet and counters as manipulatives to practice dividing out a dividend.  It was fun to get hands on with division!  Below are some pics from Mr. Featherston's class doing this activity: 


Today, the students traveled to France with Mr. Featherston and learned about the traditions of the French culture.  They had an AWESOME time on their travels!

We went to the computer lab to practice multiplication facts from THIS SITE (<---click there)

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
