Mrs. Embretson, March 18

Week at a glance...

Reading: Wonderful weather has been the topic for both reading and science this week. During reading we focused on the cause and effect of weather.

Writing: We continue to focus on opinion writing and using a writer's checklist to help make our writing better.

Math: Did your child tell you about Pi day? Though it's a concept covered in older grades, we learned about measuring circles and why Pi day is celebrated on March 14.

Social Studies/Science/Health: Our Let's Find Out magazine taught us the old saying "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb". We also learned about tools for measuring different kinds of weather.

Snack Helpers, March 21-25
