  3. 4th Grade -
    I never heard of a 'slug' in measurement until I saw it on your class blog yesterday afternoon. Last night when we were measuring Eloise Joy, we had to convert grams to ounces, and on the conversion list was 'slugs'! I was able to say, "I know what a slug is. The 4th grade learned about them today!" (By the way, Eloise weighs 4 pounds and 1 ounce now!) -Mrs. Williams

  4. i think it is really neat that you can use slugs even when your measuring a baby! A LIKE LEARNING ABOUT MEASUREMENTS! BY: MOLLY JO HIER
