Ask your student what they learned about insects today.
We measured using a pencil eraser that is about the size of a centimeter. We also noticed that using non-standard units will not always be the same number in length.
In writing we are connecting fiction and non-fiction while writing about the life cycle of a plant.
We are beginning to read even more non-fiction to build our vocabulary in this area.
I will send out notes about the Easter Party on Wednesday.
We sent home a zoo field trip form for permission and volunteers. Please return this tomorrow.
