Hey guys! In social studies this week we worked on our Prezi’s and learned more about regions. Here’s a riddle, how many regions are you in right now? Think about it. The answer is three or four or five because you will always live in a country, you live in a state, inside a state you have a city, you can live in a county, or a special district. The top limit is five regions.
Our country holds 50 states. Each state is a political region. A political region mean people each have their own voting rights. The capital of our country is Washington, D.C., that is where our president lives. Our nation’s capital is called a federal district, It is not part of any state.
As I said before, our country holds 50 states. Our country is split into different regions: the southeast, southwest, west, midwest, and northeast. Did you know that Nebraska is in the Midwest? Did you also know that Florida is in the southwest? In the west there is Oregon, and in the northeast there is Maine.
A city hold a county. Cities are another kind of political region within states. For example, each state chooses a capital city to be on the center of it’s government. In the same way, each city sets up it’s own municipal, or city, government.
And last but not least we have a special district. To organize all these services, people often divide counties and cites into even smaller regions called special districts. Many counties and cites are divided into voting districts, school districts, and police districts. I hope you learned a lot, bye!

This week in math we are changing improper fractions into mixed numbers. We also worked on changing mixed numbers into improper fractions. To change an mixed number into a improper fractions, you take the whole number and multiply it by the denominator. After you do that you add the numerator to the number you got when you multiplied the whole and the denominator, you get an improper fraction. To change an improper fraction to a mixed number you have to see how many whole pieces you have in the fraction. For example, if you have 15/5 you have to divide 5 into 15 which equals 3.

This week we are catching up on writing our blog post on a couple things like our UNF field trip, our favorite activity and our Prezi about regions. We learned about 3 kinds of there’s: they’re, their, and there. They’re is a contraction for they are. Their means belonging to, it shows ownership. There refers to a place. We had partners to discuss which there to put in different sentences. We practiced on noredink.com and then we took a quiz on all the types of there’s. We also read. Here are some pictures of us working on them and reading.
