In math this morning we created bar graphs that required the use of a scale that counted by tens. I also met with students, in a small group, to practice subtracting 3 digit numbers. There is a pictograph worksheet for homework and we will have a quiz tomorrow.

In reading we reviewed the concept of cause and effect by discussing examples from stories we have read in class. Then we began reading a non-fiction book, Race to the South Pole, and identifying examples of cause and effect. We will continue this tomorrow.

For writing, the children worked on their topic lists for personal narratives. We shared our topics aloud and practiced making sure they were not too broad.

Following music, lunch and recess the students will listen to a presentation from Fannie Mae representatives about our upcoming Homeless Walk. Then we will continue with small group reading and writing instruction.

Bears: We will continue locating answers to questions in the text using post-it notes. Then we will practice writing answers to the questions in our RRJ.

Tigers: We will finish reading Hot-Air Henry and share the places we labeled the story elements. Then we will write about the plot in our RRJ.

Lions: WE will discuss Jean Little's disability and read chapter 1. We will also discuss the characters, setting and problem.

Remember that book orders are due tomorrow!
The Octoberfest is Sunday!
PLEASE sign and return the pink Homeless Walk do not have to send money but we are hoping all students will return the signed pink form!
