This week we are learning about fractions. We used KitKats today. We learned that there are two halves in one unit, four quarters in one unit and that
2 quarters = 1 half. Next week we will learn how to reduce fractions. Have a great weekend!

Skipathon Rhymes

I'm a little Dutch Girl dressed in blue,

Here are the things I like to do:

Salute the captain, bow to the queen,

Turn my back on the submarine,

I can do the tap dance, I can do the splits,

I can disappear just like this.

One, two, buckle your shoe,

Three, four, shut the door,

Five, six pick up sticks,

Seven, eight lay them straight,

Nine, ten this is the end.

Little orphan Annie hops on one foot,

Little orphan Annie hops on two feet,

Little orphan Annie hops on three feet (bend down and touch the floor)

Little orphan Annie hops on four feet, (touch the floor with both hands)

Little orphan Annie hops out!

Skipathon on in school tomorrow!

Airports Closed in Ireland and UK... Why?

Smoke and steam hangs over the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland. Volcanic ash drifting across the Atlantic forced the cancellation of flights in Ireland and UK and disrupted air traffic across Europe
