Jam Against Drugs!!

Jam against drugs will be our classroom theme for tomorrow!!  The students are allowed to wear their jammies to school and we will jam a few times.  I will discuss with them the reasons that it is important to live a drug free lifestyle.

Number of the Day:  330 (Number before, Number after, next odd, next even, ten more, ten less, one hundred more)

Writing Workshop:  We read the story Big Mama's and Short Cut by Donald Crews.  This is a great example of how an author took a story and pulled a small moment from the story to make a new story.  We continue to work on our small moment plans and stories.

Reading Workshop:  We focused on main idea and supporting details.  Please have your child pull out the main idea from the story they read and three supporting details for this main idea.

Math Workshop:  We looked at estimating differences.  This is just rounding and then subtracting.

Science:  We completed a lab on the differences between solids and liquids.  We then discussed the differences with solids, liquids, and gases.  The students will need to find one example of each of these at their homes.

**Wear jammies tomorrow.  NO COSTUMES!!!!
