Greetings from Room 116!
Well, March is certainly not going out like a lamb! Apparently, we will have to wait a little while longer for spring-like weather to appear. (Evidently the groundhog was right after all.)
Below is a quick recap of our busy week:
ELA: We continued to read historical fiction novels in our book groups, examining how characters persevere through difficult times. We studied more r-controlled vowels in Spelling and additional comma usages in Grammar. We also compiled lists of personal experiences for our own memoir writing.
Math: We began our investigation of data and graphing with a look at tally charts, pictographs, and bar graphs.
Science/SS: We learned about heredity and evolution and finished our informational writing about the Pilgrims.
Other: We enjoyed a read aloud by Sherry Santini, the DY Director of Humanities, who paid a special visit to our classroom. We also added to our biography newspaper project in Library and Computers.
Best wishes to all for a relaxing weekend!
