  Once again -- blogger has not been posting our poems!


I made myself a snowball
As perfect as could be.
I thought I'd keep it as a pet 
And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas
And a pillow for its head.
Then last night it ran away,
But first -- it wet the bed.

 By Shel Silverstein

Word Problem of the week

  Our classroom computer is having difficulty connecting to the printer lately -- so I've asked the students to check the blog for the math homework!

We have been learning about capacity. We have been doing many hands-on activities measuring the capacity of a variety of containers. Now it is time to extend that knowledge!

Room 15 students! Please try this word problem in your homework notebook :)

A jar holds two scoops of rice. How many jars hold six scoops of rice?
Show your work in pictures (it will make it so much easier). Then write the answer in a sentence. 
 Thanks, and have fun!
