### Sunshine! YES!

So nice to have a sunny day!

In math we took our data from the class pictograph and showed it on a bar graph. Then the students constructed a bar graph using the data we gathered about favorite ice cream flavors. While they worked independently I met with two groups. One group practice solving subtraction with regrouping problems. The other worked on numeric patterns and using hundreds blocks to solve addition with regrouping problems. There is a bar graph worksheet for homework and we will have a quiz tomorrow.

In reading we continued using the book Race to the South Pole to identify examples of cause and effect in non-fiction text. The we used sentences and fragments from the book to identify the difference between a complete and an incomplete sentence.

While I met with reading groups the students completed their planning sheet for their next personal narrative. They also read three pages in Race to the South Pole and identified two examples, from those pages, of cause and effect on a worksheet. Then they completed any unfinished work, corrected spelling in their RRJ and read silently.
