October 8 – 12

We started this week on Tuesday because Monday was Columbus Day!  When we came back on Tuesday we got right back on track in science with a test about types of rocks and layers of the Earth.  Wednesday was walk to school day!  Then on Thursday we did a lot, we started order of operations, we set our goal for Pennies for Pasta which was $800 and Anna shared her state project on Alabama.  On Friday we had no school due to tropical storm Michael.  So we had a three day school week.  Reminders: Monday math test and Tuesday picture day
