Thank you to all our wonderful parents who accompanied us to Hidden Villa Farm! We would not be able to go on trips like it without your help.
Looking forward to the rest of November and December, students will continue nonfiction writing and studying plants and animals in science. We have planted carrots, kale, and spinach and students have been observing them grow. We will be replanting some of them in the community garden to continue to observe changes and the rest into terrariums as we transition into learning more about animals and habitats, specifically earthworms and pill bugs. Students will learn how animals meet their needs and the importance of these little decomposers to larger habitats and ecosystems. In math, students continue to build fluency in addition and subtraction within 20 and continue to build their number sense through counting collections.
I hope everyone is finding the time to enjoy Fall!
