We will begin a unit about Earth Day this week, along with stories and concepts about "What is in the Sky?" The focus will be on the planets, stars, clouds, and objects that go into the sky, such as kites and birds. At the end of the week we will start our science unit about fish, and start painting our Earth Day t-shirts!! We will also be planting some seeds, too! As we enter the last 8 weeks of school, some of the students will have an individual focus on the concepts that they need more practice with. I may be sending home some "focus homework" with your child, so they can review some of the work with parents at home. Every little bit of review and practice is helpful!! Keep practicing those homework squares at home, along with the reading homework towards DQ treats! The Book Fair is open on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Remember it is a great deal- buy one book, get one free!! Resting towels will be sent home Friday for washing. Scholastic book orders are due this Wednesday, if interested.
