Hope you had a great labor day!!

I hope that you all had a great labor day.  I spent the day with my family at the pool and eating some shrimp.  It was nice to get to relax with the whole family.

Morning Journal:  What did you do over the long weekend?

Reading Workshop:  We discussed the difference between fiction and nonfiction books.  We brainstormed a list of fiction and nonfiction books that we have read in class.  We worked on completing an open sort through our word work.  The students classified and categorized four different items.

Math Workshop:  We created a tally mark graph through a dice game and then put the graph information into a dot plot (Line Graph).  The students learned how to find the mode:  the most and the range: the lowest number minus the highest number.  Tonight for homework they have to create a dot plot of their family members names.

SS:  We learned about the final two regions of South Carolina: the outer coastal plain and the coastal zone.  We colored in these two regions on our map and label them with the correct names.  We will have a test on the regions on Friday.

Science:  We finished our rock classification sheet and we will move on to minerals tomorrow.

The book order is due FRIDAY!!!
