We had such a busy day today.  In math we worked on word problems.  The chapter 3 test will be Friday.  Please begin to review.  We will also review all week.  I cannot post the review to the blog because it will not allow me to copy and past the sample charts.  I will send a hard copy home tomorrow.  This is a hard chapter.  The MOST important thing to review is to look at the key.  Then use the key to count on the pictograph.  Also review Range, Mode and Median...and how to put the data in order first.

We had a special weather presentation from John Marshall from the CBS news!!!  It was very cool.

In reading we discussed fiction books and how we can determine that they are fiction.  We continue to write our fairy tales.  In religion we finished the chapter on the Bible.
