I want to wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! I know I am blessed and have so much to be thankful for this year. Enjoy your day tomorrow and the rest of your time off with your family.
On the Go....
We've started a new unit; On the Go. The kids will explore the fascinating world of transportation. They will design a road, traffic signal and bridge. Your child will explore flight in an airplane, a hot air balloon and a helicopter. Then, make a boat and test in in the water.
Letters C, T and W
Numbers 5 and 6
Skins and Shells....
We wrapped up our "In the Orchard" unit this week. The kids learned the parts of a walnut & chestnut. They can describe an avocado, banana & peach and identify fruits that have pits.
Animals in an Orchard...
This week we learned about animals that live in an orchard; porcupines, birds, bugs, raccoon's and squirrels. We talked about animals that help in an orchard and those that are orchard pests. We finished up letter O and are starting on R. My older kids are also working on sight words and their progress is amazing.
Life Cycle of a Tree & Fruit Trees
Your child should be able to identify and describe the parts of a tree: seeds, roots, trunk, branches and leaves. They should also be able to describe the inside of a tree trunk, identify things that grow on branches and explain why leaves change color and fall off of trees in the fall.
