MARCH 30- APRIL 3
The past 3 weeks have been really fun for the kids, learning about animals. The animal theme is one that everyone can relate to, and learn some fascinating animal facts and information. We wrapped up the theme with students sharing information about their own pets, or about one they wish they had. I was so impressed with them! Great job! We have been collecting the pennies and coins for the Tri-County Humane Society during the past 1 1/2 weeks. So far, we have collected an impressive amount- over $200!! We will end the collection this Thursday. I cannot thank everyone enough for the generosity that has been displayed with this effort to donate to the animals and the Humane Society.
This week we will begin a reading unit on transportation. We will also do a few projects related to spring animals and eggs. It is a 4-day week, followed by a 4-day weekend. The April calendar and homework sheets will be sent home on Wednesday. March homework should be turned in by next week. Earth Day shirt money can be sent in anytime, but by April 10th. Enjoy your long weekend!
