Peek At The Week

No school today, but we had another great week of learning together!

In Math, we continued learning about data and graphs. We sorted favorite pet data and made a tally chart and bar graph. We also sorted our own survey data into categories with a partner. After that, we created our own bar graphs and picture graphs.  They came out very well and they had a lot of fun!  On Monday we’ll share our results with our classmates.

In Science, we began we reviewed the water cycle and began learning about the 3 main types of clouds which are cirrus, cumulus, and stratus. We made a cloud book with information and learned a fun cloud song sung to BINGO.
We also watched a short film about wind and clouds.

On Monday, I will send home a special weather project for each student.  The project will be due on Wednesday, March 20th.

*The Memorial Wine Tasting Fundraiser is coming up and we have a “Snack Attack” basket for our class. We are still in need of snacks! If one student sends in one snack, we will have a full basket. So far we have some goldfish crackers and chocolate covered pretzels.
Thank you for all of your contributions.

I hope you all have a great weekend!
