Growing With Green - May 7, 2018

Last week we jumped into our non-fiction unit in Writer’s Workshop. Children came up with their expert ideas, and started outlining their “How-to” books. We were so impressed with our author’s/ illustrator’s creativity and writing skills. Last week we started our money unit in preparation for Shopping Day. We investigated coins and we will start learning their values. We are continuing with independent math packets, ST Math, reading groups and science journals.

We are looking forward to our field trip to Tree People and Roxbury Park on Wednesday, May 9th. PLEASE SEND IN A  LABELED SNACK AND LUNCH AND A DRINK FOR YOUR CHILD ON THAT DAY. Please make sure your child wears closed-toed shoes, and not sandals on this day. 

Shopping Day will take place on Wednesday, May 30, from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m.  We will provide the children with $1.00 worth of coins to shop with, so PLEASE DO NOT SEND IN MONEY.  The children will name the different stores and design store front signs for them.  Each shop will be filled with special inventory that we have purchased.  The children will be able to purchase and keep the items from the different stores, so this is an actual shopping experience!  We will need lots of shopkeepers to run the different stores. Please sign up on the attached sheet.  It is one of our favorite activities of the year . . . so “Come on down and Shop ‘til you drop!”
