The Curriculum Corner: It's Garden Season!

Click here to view a fantastic series of videos from PBS Learning Media that can support our garden routines now that spring is here! From "a year in the life of a garden" to "pests & helpers", PBS has it all covered! All the videos are short, and as you click through you will find that each video includes a breakdown of the applicable standards, a background essay (for whole group/close reading) & some questions. Thank you for a fantastic week & have a great weekend!

News & Notes

Bulldog Buddies Updates
  • In order to monitor bathroom behaviors & vandalism we will be establishing "grade level restrooms" for 2nd & 3rd Grade. Rooms in the 2nd grade hall will use the restroom at the end of the hallway (by the gym). Rooms in the 3rd grade hall will use the restroom next to the cafeteria. This routine will be followed during lunches as well.
  • Our next Bulldog Buddies Universal Reward is here! To celebrate our achievements (and Earth Day) we will be enjoying "Disney Nature: Oceans" at GHS! As you watch, consider how this can support our opinion writing unit!

Garden Updates
