### Happy Birthday Pictogram!

Mrs. Yollis discovered a wonderful graphing site from Mrs. Ogden.

Today we looked at the birthdays in the classroom using a birthday pictogram.

Then we made up questions!

How many more birthdays are there in November than June?

There are 3 more birthdays in November than June.

December is a busy month in our house. Not only is my birthday December 18th, my dad's birthday is on December 21st and both sets of grandparents celebrate their anniversaries in December. My favorite part about December is Christmas.

Happy four day weekend!

Warmly,

19. Hello Mrs Yollis's class!

It's great to meet you. We're a grade 2 class from Western Australia.

We're looking forward to seeing some of the things you are learning about this year. Keep up the good work!

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N

20. Hello Smarties and Mrs. N.!

We ♥ your blog! It is always fun to see what you are up to as well.

I am very envious of all the laptops you have in your classroom. We have two computers and they are so slow! :-(

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for the compliment! Your question is great also. The season with the least number of birthdays is spring, with 3 birthdays.

24. Dear Ryan,

I don't quite understand your question. Do you mean which months have two birthdays in them or how many birthdays have the digit 2 in them?

Please let me know,
Hannah

25. Dear Mrs.Yollis,

I would have brought in my birthday pictogram today, but I woke up late. My parents say I have been going to sleep too late. I am going to bring in my birthday pictogram tomorrow. I am going to sleep now.
Good night,

26. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

I almost forgot your blog, but luckily I didn't. I think it's amazing how many people were born on: September, March, November, and December. I was born on May 18.
