Snacks Needed Please

We are in need of classroom snacks. These kids are working hard, and they get so hungry throughout the day. If you could send in a bag/box or two of snacks, we'd all appreciate it! Anything that's easy/fast to pass out,

Writing

We are continuing to write stories that have a beginning, middle, and end. To help my students plan out their writing and to add more details, we have been practicing drawing pictures first. We draw out the first, second, and third event in the story. We then write sentences next to the picture to describe each event. In the end, we have a story that is sequenced and detailed. Students will be assessed on this skill at the end of the week. You will see their writing come home next week with the rubric I've used to grade their work.

Science

We are learning all about insects, plants, oviparous animals, and Earth Day this month!

Poetry

April is poetry month! We will be writing all kinds of poetry for our hallway bulletin board. I'll be sure to take pictures of it and send it home since you won't see their work for a little bit.
