Animal Projects

In Language Arts we are making great progress on our non-fiction research project. Be sure to ask your child what animal they are researching and some facts they have learned about that animal throughout this process!


Please encourage your child to be reading for AR at home to fulfill their reading log requirements. I would like students to be reading 30 minutes/night for 5 nights/week. So total 150 minutes due every Monday morning. Minutes read on the weekends count, too! The next reading log is due Monday, February 26th. I will expect 150 minutes.
