What Are We Up To In Room 115?

We were able to share our math game concepts with Mr. Miller's class & see theirs as well!

Math

We are beginning to do some things with measurement! As March Madness begins we will each pick a team that makes it to NCAA Tourney and use graphing to compare statistics from their regular seasons.


We will also do a unit on fractions again, using recipes to relate our math to real world situations.

Reading/Writing

March Madness is well under way! Please make sure your child fills out their log at home too! They can count any types of reading that they do.

Science

Thank you for all your egg donations! We are making geodes and can't wait to see what happens! We are also experimenting with other rock types.

Word Work--NEW DESIGN

We will continue words with ending of er/ier and est/iest. Our test won't be until March 20th due to IREAD reviewing and testing.
