Dear Mrs. McBride & Our Blog Buddies!!
We are learning about the chances of something happening. This is called probability. We have been playing with dice and spinners and popsicle sticks and checking out the weather.
We know it is impossible for:
~ a pig to fly
~ that is will rain pop
~ that Ryan will stay home from school today
~ that superheros are real
~ that it will rain popcorn
It is unlikely for:
~ for the power to go out
~ that it will be a snow day
~ that Brian will buy a new car
It is likely for:
~ for us to come to school tomorrow
~ Ms. King to eat lunch
~ for us to drink water every day
~ for us to have Track & Field next week
It is certain that:
~ that we have to breathe air
~ that we had recess once already today
~ Mrs. Gregus is here
~ everyone has parents even if they don’t live with them
What is the probability of it raining today at your school?
What is the probability of your class going on a class trip?
We hope to hear from you soon!
Ms. King & the Busy Bees
