What have we been learning?
In Writing, we have been busy working on persuasive letters. Last week, your child wrote you a letter persuading you to use reusable bags when grocery shopping. He/she also made you a bag to use. The class has been busy writing all kinds of persuasive letters to a variety of people.
In science, our silkworms continue to grow and the class has noticed their huge appetite for mulberry leaves. Our cotton stainers had babies over the weekend!
