Dear Families,

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and restful Fall Break! Upon returning from break, we begin our nonfiction writing unit. Students will be writing How to Books and All About Books on various topics. In math, we will continue to build fluency in addition and subtraction with an emphasis on five and ten relationships. We will also begin a new science unit on plants and animals. Students will gain an understanding of what plants and animals need to survive and how we as humans depend on these larger systems to survive and how we can utilize them sustainably through a hands on experiential unit. We will begin by learning more about compost and by planting kale, spinach, and carrots. Looking forward, this unit will provide a meaningful foundation for when we go visit Hidden Villa Farm. 

Welcome back!
