A look at the week This past week, we worked through the end of Unit 3 in our Math Journals. We will take our takes on Unit 3 on Monday morning. In reading, we finished the story Night of the Pufflings. Burrows, venture, stranded, instinctively, uninhabited and nestles were our vocabulary words. We took notes on puffins from our textbooks and websites. We will work on writing an informative paragraph on puffins at the beginning of next week. In computers, we are working on Microsoft Excel charts and learning about e-mail.
