End of the year curriculum

Reading-We are reviewing Compare & Contrast, Main Idea/Details, Theme, Setting, Plot and Series of Events h our Fairy Tale Unit.

Math-This week will conclude our Measurement Unit. After that, we will be giving a unit on graphing and data. The children will be solving simple addition and subtraction problems through the use of their data collection.

Social Studies-We are finishing the year with our Wheaton History Unit in preparation for our Wheaton Field Trip.

Science-The children have had a very interactive Plant Unit! They have experienced the process of growing a bean plant and grass as little gardeners. The unit will conclude with an exciting field trip to the Children's Garden at the Morton Arboretum.

Writing-For our last writing unit, the children will be writing a Narrative incorporating Time-Order words and focusing on one event in time.

Help is Needed for our Morton Arboretum Field Trip!!

So far, we have only a few volunteers to help chaperone our Morton Arboretum Field Trip. If you have this date available, and would be willing to join us, please contact your child's teacher as soon as possible. Thank you in advance!
