Math Fun !

Hey Everyone,

I know that since I’m not here today you are probably feeling like this…

But don’t worry. After all the fun stuff I have planned for you guys to do in my absence you are gonna be all…


Today in math, I would love to see 45 minutes of MATH on Khan academy. Work on your 3rd grade percentage, master a million skills, get 100% in 5th grade really quick. You know, the usual.

After that time you have some CHOICES.  Here they are:

Work on Solvemoji (I ❤ this site!)

Challenge your friends to a range of academic games & delights on Arcademics 

Practice your CODING skills on KA or Scratch!

Have fun! Work hard! Be kind!

Lots of love,

Ms. Thomas

Photosynthesis Poster Project


Today your task is to create a poster that explains the process of photosynthesis. You will work in groups of 3 to create a poster that describes what photosynthesis is and the key steps in the process.

To help you with this, you have some photosynthesis clip art, as well as the resources below. Each person on your team has been assigned a color. This will help me see how each person in your group contributed to your poster.

Use the resources below to help you:

Brainpop video


Photosynthesis vocabulary (from brainpop)

Happy poster making!


Ms. Thomas
