This Week in 4K:

  • We have been busy observing our carrot, spinach and bean seeds this past week. We made a drawing on Thursday of what our plants looked like and will do another drawing on this Monday and again on Thursday. We will continue to discuss the changes we observe. Please ask your child about what the plants look like and how big they are. The spinach plants were about 2 1/2 inches on Thursday and the carrots were 1 inch.
  • We will be an Eric Carle study this week and will some projects around his books.
  • We will be learning another new app the library with Miss Jenny.
  • We will be doing some adding and subtracting as whole group.
  • I will be doing PALS testing again this week with the students. I will send home the results in a few weeks.
