Today in science we created a study guide for the soil and fossil test that we will take in class tomorrow. Please make sure your child studies this tonight as part of their homework. I will do a small review before the test tomorrow and take any questions they need to ask.
Morning Journal: What is your favorite type of breakfast food and why?
Writing Workshop: We were completing the school writing prompt of: A time you had fun with a friend.
Reading Workshop: We did not do reading workshop today, due to late start day and completing the school writing prompt.
Math Workshop: We reviewed over basic addition problems like: 8+7=___. We reviewed that they numbers that you add are called addends and the answer is called a sum. I introduced estimating sums, which is basically just rounding the two addends and then adding up the rounded numbers to get your estimate.
**School pictures are next week on October 16th. You must send in your order form on this day.
