Book Orders

I sent Scholastic book order forms home on Monday! This will be our LAST Scholastic book order I submit this year! We are nearing the end of the school year and I would love for you to check out some of the cool books you could have your child reading during the Summer months! Please take the time to consider this one last order! We have been reading so well in our classroom and the practice during the Summer months will only increase their fluency before beginning first grade!

Plant Life Cycles

We planted our seeds this week! We are conducting an experiment between our class and Mrs. Myers' class! Mrs. Myers has plants in the same containers and they are sitting on a ledge by the window. Unfortunately, our classroom does not have any windows, so we are sitting our plants on the ledge above our cubbies! We also have a container planted that is sitting inside our closet!
We will be labeling the plant, filling out a journal as our plants grow, and discussing as a group!

Our essential question is: Do plants need actual sunlight to grow?

Our hypothesis is: The plants in direct sunlight will grow MUCH bigger than ours!



Thank you so much for all of the book orders for our class book! We sent out our book, "When I Grow Up..." to the publisher today. The children worked really hard on their sentences and illustrations. I was very proud of them. The book will be published April 15th. We should receive it back sometime in the early weeks of May. We will definitely have it before school is out for summer. I hope you love your keepsake as much as I will!
