STAR STUDENT OF THE WEEK IS.................
Sophie also lost another tooth today.

Calendar- the special helpers put up the date, counts down to 100 days of school, and tells us what the weather is like today.
Agenda Read 15 minutes daily, get spelling test signed, math review due Monday, trip form, math test Thursday, cursive book pgs. 52-55
UOI with language focus- Today students completed their weekly spelling test. We also began our novel study, Dinosaur's Before Dark. We read the first chapter without seeing the chapter book cover. We thought about the characters and settings in the story so far. We then created our own picture of what we thought the cover of the book would look like.

Math- Students were given word problems. They had to figure out whether they needed to add or subtract. They created the equation and solved the problem. 
Unit of InquiryWe talked about our new UOI. We discussed the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. We drew a picture of what the Triassic period would look like.
