Snow Day School

Good morning, anyang, buenos Dias, class:
Hopefully you are enjoying your day. This is a good day for reading inside. Today you should try to read for at least 30 minutes without stopping. What did you read? 

Right now,looking out the window,  the falling snow looks like out of control popcorn. How would you describe the snow?

This video link shows a way to measure snow:

How would you measure snow? How much snow fell where you are?

Relax and enjoy your day,
Mr. Rabinowitz

 PS Feel free to leave positive comments/questions in complete sentences for your classmates.
