We will read the companion book Rosie Revere Engineer later in the week.

We will start How-To writing this week. Students will assist in a shared writing activity to write about making trail mix. In the coming weeks students will write step by step directions for things they know how to do.


This week, we will explore data, shapes and base 10 blocks. Students will survey their classmates and create a bar graph to match their data. We will learn about doubles facts and review facts with a sum of 10, as well as +1 and +0 facts.


We will discuss family traditions. In science we will make a table fiddle and book fiddle and learn more about how vibrations create sound. We will make a drop chamber and practice identifying sounds of various objects.
