The first week of school!

We have had a great first week of school. Here are some fun things that we would like to tell you about:

1. In math we talked about problem solving. We learned about UPSL, our strategy for solving problems.
2. In science we have set up our Science Inquiry journal. We talked about how scientists show the different learner profile traits.
3. We watched a video called "Caine's Arcade". It was about a boy who made an arcade out of cardboard boxes. He made a business because he had customers and he made money. Out first IB unit will be about the economy.
4. In math we talked about what we knew about money to get our minds thinking.

Blog Bonus!!!
Talk to your family about how they earn, spend and save money. Write a list of 3 things you can do at home to earn money and 3 items you would like to save your money for so you can buy.
