A Week in Pictures!



Our Daily Readers!

During Math Workshop, we learned about measurement, graphing, and data analysis.  We measured in inches and centimeters, our arm spans and standing jumps.  We created a line plot of our arm spans, and bar graphs of our jumps.  We determined the range, median, and mode of each.

 In readers' workshop we learned about cause and effect and how characters react.  During writers' workshop we are writing persuasive brochures.

This week we will celebrate Valentine's Day.  A list of students names went home on Thursday.  Please send in a valentine addressed to each student so that at our party each child will receive a valentine.

End of January

We heard from some great readers: Victor, Diana, Lily, Stacy, and Ian.

 Josh's stepdad was a mystery reader!

And we learned about this African drum that Caitlyn's dad sent all the way from Africa.  Fun!

We finished our biographies and we are learning about persuasive argument.  We continue to learn about character traits and how characters change over time.  We are working now on cause and effect.

We began unit 7 in math.  We will be learning about measurement.
