Our very own Mrs. Gorman chose to adopt our 11 chicks that hatched, and she promised to document them for us as they develop into hens or cockerels! Be sure to have your child report back to you as he/she receives updates from Art class!

We have started our Zoo Animal Research Project! We have chosen THREE animals that reside at the Ft. Wayne Children's Zoo. Each child will be researching three animals that interest them. Be sure to talk with your child about what he or she has learned as we prepare for our field trip!







***Tuesday is our day to attend the book fair during our specials time! Please send money with your child in an envelope labeled Book Fair with his/her name on it, and the amount enclosed.



Homework: as noted last week, there is only a "check list/template" that needs signed and returned in the folder on Friday. Your child will not have read the book before it is sent home, so be sure to take time to talk about it during and after reading. Also, if your child still needs to pass rainbow words be practicing these as well. Some are very close to passing the sets they are on! Let's keep going!!
