This week was very busy! The author/illustrator David Catrow came to our school on Tuesday. We had been reading books he's worked on leading up to his visit, and we really enjoyed them! He drew several pictures during our assembly and read one of the books he illustrated to us.
On Monday, we identified the parts of plants. The students worked with a partner to look at a pansy plant. They had great questions!
On Tuesday, we talked about the needs of a plant. We made a flip book and designed an experiment to test how light affects plants. One plant is in the closet, one is under a paper bag, and the third is in the sunlight.
On Friday, we looked at different bean seeds, and students worked to classify them. I shared some resources with them with illustrations and pictures of each bean.
We finished our i-Ready assessments this week, and I will send home scores hopefully before spring break. I am also working on monthly assessments, and a skills check sheet will come home soon.
The fundraiser packets came home yesterday. Students have until April 21st to sell, and money and orders will be due that day.
Have a wonderful weekend!
