Agenda Read 15 minutes a night, spelling sentences due Friday, African Lion Safari payment (if not done so already), track and field Friday, math test Thursday
UOI with language focus- Today students brainstormed about their favourite summer treat. They came up with 3 to decide from to create an opinion letter. Students wrote a letter to me about what their favourite summer treat is and why it is their favourite.

Math- Today we continued working with mass. Students completed a sheet where they had to determine what object would have a greater mass. They also used a balance scale to determine what had the greatest mass out of the objects they picked. Students picked 4 items and used the scale to order them from lightest to heaviest. 

Unit of Inquiry- Students looked at plants and animals from the rainforest. They made a list of some plants and animals and completed a drawing of a rainforest.
