Writing- Weekend News- write about something you did this weekend! Please remember to use your Writer's checklist and follow writer's rules! We would love to see them, so share if you can!

Shared Reading- No new story this week.  Please complete the last two week assignments for lessons, "A Whistle for Willie" and "A Tree is a Plant".

Math-Lesson 8.1 Polygons and Nonpolygons

* If you have not done so already, view Miss Cantz's videos; "The Attributes of Shapeshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHX6_awvssM  and
" Defining and Nondefining attributes of Shapes"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bs5hiF3HTHY

*compare and contrast on the venn diagram -closed shapes/straight lines- both are polygons p. 223
On page 156 in the packet shows examples and nonexamples. The page titled "comparing 2-dimensional shapes" are the instructions for the venn diagram and shows an example of a venn diagram (with the red and blue crayons.)   *polygons only have straight sides (no curves), they are closed shapes (no gaps or spaces) so if the shapes on p 223 follow these rules, they are polygons and go in the middle of the venn diagram.  If the shapes are closed, but have curved lines, they go on the "closed" circle on the venn diagram.  If the shapes are open, but have straight lines, they go in the "straight lines" circle of the venn diagram. They are only a polygon if the sides are straight, meet at the corners, and are closed!  Hope this helps!
