Happy October! I can't believe we have 3 weeks of school under our belts already! Today we started Unit 1 of our Wonders literacy program. We will have an "Essential Question" each week that will guide all of the reading and writing activities for that week, and this week's question is "What do you do at your school?" We have all become experts on this subject! We will have lots of background knowledge to help us comprehend stories and write about our school days. Today in math we learned a game called Rolling for 50. It is a game that helps students practice navigating a number grid. Your student brought home a game board and directions so you can try it out at home!
Also - Our Painted Lady Butterflies hatched today!!! Some students were even lucky enough to see a hatch in progress! They are so beautiful! We released them to the garden and watched them fly!
