We will turn junk into masterpieces! We will display our finished product in the Media Center. Happy hunting!


We also need empty milk cartons by Thursday. We will plant seeds in the cartons then will hang them on the garden’s fence.

Educreations

My goal is to share each student's work using a program called Educreations. I promise you will see your child's work however, it may take a few weeks because I'm going to spotlight 5 children each week. Just click on a child's name and it will take you to a sight where you can listen to the children reading their work. Enjoy!
