    A packet of 4 worksheets were sent home on Wednesday in the event of a snow day on Friday.  They were stapled together with a post-it note stating they were to be done on Friday if we had a snow day.  I have written more specific instruction on those worksheets if needed below.

    Additionally, students should also read at least 20 minutes in any book.  Make sure to keep track of their reading time on the book-it chart.

    They are:

    Dictionary skills- put the words in the correct boxes according to the stated guide words.

    Reading-Part I: Match the character to the correct description of each, Part II:  Fill-in the correct description words as stated in Farmer Boy book.  Use chapter 2 from Farmer Boy as a reference.


    Division color by number--solve each division problem then color correctly.  

    Make bar graphs-color or shade one square on the graph for each item pictured.  You may cross off each item as you chart it.

    Hope you have a safe day.
