Weather News

We have enjoyed our rainy days, some of us walked home in the rain and noticed that it rained hard then would stop and rain some more. We wanted to measure the rainfall over the weekend, but there wasn't enough to measure.

What's Happening In Math??

We are learning to decompose fractions (turning 3/8 into 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 or 3 X 1/8. We are having lots of fun learning about fractions and making equivalent fractions too. We are continuing to practice multiplication and division too.


We are reading about weather also in our reading books, learning how to read maps, diagrams and summarizing what we read. We are reading about the San Francisco Earthquake and Fire!


In writing we have been writing opinions about weather using a plan called OREO. This stands for Opinion, Reason, Example and Opinion again. We decided that our writing likes to be double stuffed so that is our writing goal making sure to add text evidence and support it with double examples and reasons.

Look for information to come regarding our Valentine's Day OREO celebration where we celebrate our writing and everything OREO!
