“Growing Innovators Who Will Change The World”
We have continued our measurement work. We compared our height in linker cubes, we measured an assortment of flowers using ladybugs and worms, and we compared our height (top of head to bottom of feet) to our “reach” (left fingertip to right fingertip).
We have been having fun reading Leprechaun stories!
We are learning that to understand and remember the information in books better it is important that readers make their voices sound smoother and livelier as they read.
In our writing we are learning different ways we can “teach” our readers, such as the questions they may have and adding details to our pictures (arrows, labels, close-ups).
Wednesday March 21st between 5:00-6:00 is AUTHORS’ NIGHT! Come and check out some of the writing your child has been working on!
*Every Tuesday we will be spending the afternoon in the woods. The weather is now cold PLEASE PLEASE be sure your child dresses appropriately and has appropriate footwear.
*Please remember that our school is NUT FREE especially when you are baking any shared treats (for birthdays, holiday celebrations, etc.). Be sure to always CHECK LABELS for ingredient list and if things are manufactured on equipment that also processes tree nuts and peanuts.
