Dear Parents,

This week we had a great discussion about trees. We examined two types of trees near the playground. We focused on the parts of the tree as well as its color, smell, bark etc. We also learned a new song called " The green grass grows all around". We have great LOUD singers! We also read The Giving Tree and we did a beautiful activity called the Giving Heart.


Students made and cut a shape of a heart, they decorated and they chose a friend to give that heart. In literacy, we were rhyming words by playing Ticky Ricky. We collected a basket of items that the children can name. We asked to each child to select an object from the basket, name the object, and say a word that rhyme it.


Next week, we will talk about Who lives in Trees? and What food comes from Trees?


Please ask your child the following question:


What do you know about trees? write their answers and send it to school on Monday. This will be our sharing activity on Monday Morning.
