The Week in Review
Science: We began our water unit and explored the concept of surface tension. Next week we will investigate how the slope can impact the flow of water, as well as begin to experiment with how temperature impacts water.
Reading: We are still working on establishing positive routines that support a learning environment. This week we practiced our Read to Someone routines. In addition, your child should have brought information home about their Flat Stanley Home Art Project. This will be due on the 22nd, so it would be great to start it this weekend or even on our 1/2 day on Tuesday.
Writing: We have added a few entries to our writer's notebooks. We will complete a few preassessments next week!
Social Studies: Tomorrow marks the 229th birthday of the United States Constitution. Today we celebrated it by having a short discussion on the constitution and focusing in on the preamble. A class from New Mexico broke up the preamble into kid-friendly words. We illustrated a class book to go along with it.

The Quiver App
The Quiver app will allow your child's coloring to come to life! We used it on Dot Day, and your child may have come home with this sheet. If they did, check it out...it's super cool!
The third grade and Mrs. Bonkowski's kindergarten class got together to celebrate Dot Day. Each child created their own dot design which will be showcased along the track!
Harvesting the Garden
We spent a bit of time in our garden. Each child was able to bring something home, so I hope you were able to see the tomatoes, beans, or other vegetables.
