    Unit 6 Week 3

         Unit 6 Week 3 was placed in your child's binder on Friday. I also sent a vocabulay sheet home with the students. Our class has been learning many wonderful things. Please ask your child daily what they have talked about in school and please never except "I don't know as an answer." We are growing Bell Peppers and Banana Peppers in our class garden. We have been talking about eating healthy snacks and making healthy choices. We plan on using our fresh garden peppers and a few more veggies, that I will supply, to make a small salad for students. It is wonderful to see the students work as a team to care for our garden and experiecnce the process from the beginning to end.(Plant Life Cycle/Water Cycle important to the plant cycle)

        We have been talking about maps, telling time using an analog clock and a digital clock. Student are counting coins, nickels, dimes, pennies, quarters, and dollars to show a money amount in different ways. We are also learning about the life cycle of the butterfly, the mealworm, and the human body.
