Math test is tomorrow!  In your child's homework folder is a math packet.  In class they were to complete 4 problems on each page. They are supposed to show you the whole packet (6 pages total) and get you to sing the front page.  Your signature means that your student explained each page to you.

In EL we wrote the middle of our "Why Polliwogs Wiggle" pourquoi tale.  We also wrote a poem about Bullfrogs.  I am going to put pictures of the poems on twitter.

In Math we prepared for our math test by solving problems using arrays, equal group pictures , number lines, skip counting, repeated addition, distributive property, commutative property, math mountains, and fact families.

In science we made a pocket solar system.

REPORT CARDS WENT HOME TODAY!!!!!! (5 pages) Please return the empty brown envelope signed.
Today in EL we started planning our class pourquoi tale. Why do Polliwogs Wiggle?  Our polliwog is Cash.  He is not athletic but want to win the swimming contest.  Old Messy John and many other  Polliwogs jump and make fun of Cash who does not jump well.  With the help of his friend Jimmy, Cash learns a new way to swim - wiggling.  He wins "by a mile". Now all polliwogs wiggle so they can win the swimming race.
In math we practiced skip counting by 3, 6, 7, 8, and 9. Now it is time to start memorizing those facts.
In science we talked about the planets in our solar system.
