We had busy week preparing for Open House. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday at 5:30 for our student showcase. You will have a chance to see in-class projects, as well as our Artist in Residence work.
We will continue to work on folk tales this week. We are wrapping up our study with tall tales. We will learn about Paul Bunyan and John Henry. Our spelling pattern this week with focus on consonant-le words.
We continue to focus on geometric ideas this week. We will look more closely at quadrilaterals, and work on applying our knowledge as we solve a mathematical problem about building a garden. As well, students will be introduced to partitioning (dividing) shapes in to even groups.
We will continue with our learning about plants this week, moving beyond seeds to explore the needs of plants. They will work through a mystery that asks; Do trees eat dirt? At the same time, students are continuing researching shifting to animal habitats as we work to bring our science learning full circle this year.
