Weekly News ~ April 22

 

Dear Families,

Our Monarch butterfly project is culminating with the return of paper butterflies from all over North America. We now will take some time to write short friendly letters to our new pen pals. Ask your child where his or her butterfly is from!

We’re spending time on Earth Day activities this week. We’ll learn what conservation means, address timely problems, and come up with ideas to reduce, reuse and recycle our resources.

The children adjusted well to taking the Milestones on a laptop! We have only 2 more days of testing on Wednesday and Thursday. Thank you to our room mother, Ms. Moriera, for providing test snacks.

The deadline for field trip permission forms is Monday, April 22nd. We are so excited about our big trip to the Booth Museum in Cartersville next Monday!

Here’s our learning plan:

  • Math~Review
  • Reading~Compare/contrast, poetry
  • Writing~Fairy tale adaptations: revision, editing, final copy
  • Science~Heat energy

Have a happy week!

Mrs. P. & Mrs. M.
