End of the Year Wrap-Up!

Reading: We have spent time working on poetry and interpreting meaning to strengthen comprehension or finding the humor in some well-known poems.

Writing: Students have been great editors as we prepare for our Author’s Tea on Monday. Students have understood the process author’s call “revising” and why it’s always important to re-read your work to make sure it is the best quality it can be. Students are so excited to share their stories with you!

Science/Social Studies: Blooms in the room! Our Brassica flowers have finally opened and we have enjoyed observing the beautiful yellow flowers that have popped out to say hello! Look out for all of our observations in our New Plant journal coming home soon!
