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.

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!
