### 100th Anniversary of the Titanic!

Yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic! I have been reading the "I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic" to the students. Today we started a discussion about the Titanic and what happened to this ship. The students were so interested, that I decided Friday will be Titanic Day! We are going to learn about all things Titanic. I am going to teach about the sinking of the ship through math, reading, and SS.

Morning Journal: It's National Airplane Day! Would you like to fly in an airplane? Imagine that you are the first kid pilot, describe your travels.

Morning Math: Place Value, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication

Math: FRACTIONS!!! Today we learned how to put fractions in order from least to greatest and greatest to least. We went over the correct answers to the morning math test from Friday.

Reading: We practiced identifying the genre of a story. We looked at the QAR's for this week's passage.

Report cards come home on Thursday!

AR assembly is this Friday. The time will be announced soon.

The following tests came home today: Morning Math Week 24, "How to Make a Kite" passage and vocabulary test.
