We are Learning...

Reading: We will be reading poetry. Students will learn vocabulary needed to better understand poetry.

Math: We are learning about graphs. Students will learn about bar graphs. Students will create their own bar graphs and be able to ask and answer questions using a bar graph.

Writing: We have been writing a caterpillar log. I suspect they will be in a chrysalis soon, so we will move to writing poetry. Maybe our caterpillar will inspire us.

Science: We will continue our study of the plant life cycle with our plant experiments and our life cycle with our caterpillars.
