Zoo Field Trip

We are going on a field trip to the Indianapolis Zoo on Tuesday, April 21, 2015. The children will extend their classroom learning by observing animals in their habitats and how these habitats meet the need for food, water and shelter for growth and survival. We will be divided into small groups as we tour the zoo so we will need parent volunteers to come help us (see attached volunteer sheet). The admission price is $10.00/student and checks need to be made out to Brooks School.


We will be eating a picnic lunch outside of the zoo, so your child will need to bring a disposable sack lunch on this day. We will be outside for the entire day so please watch the weather and have your child dressed appropriately.


Please send in your child’s permission form and money by Thursday, April 2. We look forward to a wonderful learning experience and a fun-filled day. Thank you for your continued cooperation and support.


Word Work

We will not have an official word list this week. We are going to be reviewing prior word patterns and will do a dictation test at the end of the week. The sentences will consist of pattern words and high frequency words from the past few weeks.
