This week in math we finished the math assessments in SBAC. We started multiplication story problems this week in math. We also realized that threes help us with sixes and nines. Because if we double a three its six and if you triple a tree it equals a nine.

This week we had extra recess because of SBAC. We had extra recess because Miss Humphrey thought we worked really hard and we needed a little fresh air and a break. We also earned Favorite Color Day. Favorite Color Day is when you wear your favorite color to school. We have Favorite Color Day today and Tuesday. Another fun thing this week is Miss Humphrey got engaged on Wednesday night!
