Ordering and Comparing Numbers - We are learning to use number tracks and number lines to compare the value of numbers and put them in the correct numerical order.  We are also working on identifying which numbers are greater than, less than, or equal to other numbers.
We are writing a persuasive paragraph convincing the reader to want to eat hot dogs instead of turkey on Thanksgiving.  We will be including a topic sentence, 3 or more reasons, and a closing sentence.  We will also be working on conventions, such as:
-Capital letters to start our sentences
-Correct punctuation at the end of sentences
-Spaces between words
