Welcome to our class blog. Our blog will be used as a tool to keep you updated on what we are doing in our classroom through reflections of classroom experiences, celebrations, and classroom news. Students will have opportunities to complete fun activities from the Blog that relate back to classroom learning.

A Week of Heroes!

In Reading, Science, and Social Studies this week we focused on reading about people who showed qualities of heroism and good citizenship. We learned about this by reading biographies. We read Ruby Bridges and tracked out thinking. We also read Ruby's Wish. Ruby's Wish was about a girl who was the first to go to university. We learned that these two characters were a lot alike!
- Both girls were the only ones in school.
- Both girls experienced discrimination. Ruby Bridge's was discriminated against because of her skin color and Ruby was discriminated against because she was a girl.

In math we learned about Lone Star math. It will help us review math. We also learned about place value up to the hundreds. Today we made number webs using playing cards. Next week we will be learning place value up to the hundred thousands.

Have a great weekend! Remember: Book order is due Sept. 7th. For online ordering please send Ms. Pair a note!
