What season is it?

We're back to 90 degree weather again, I guess!  Lots of sneezing going on in our room...including me!

Math: We jumped in to Lesson 1-2 today.  It is REALLY important for students to be practicing their multiplication facts throughout this topic.  p. 11, #31, 32, 33, 34, and 36 were assigned for homework tonight.

Science: We observed an onion in "real life" as well as at the cellular level.  We drew  and wrote our observations.  We also started reading Chapter 1.

Literacy Block: Handwriting, week 3, Monday is for homework.  Students should take special care with this--it's months of the year, and they can be tricky to spell.  We completed 27 minutes of Read to Self time today.  We also completed 8 minutes of Work on Writing, which seemed like not a lot of time as far as the students were concerned.

We had school pictures taken today. Everyone looked great!
