Looks like Winter will be joining us this weekend. May you
all be safe and warm. Remember to send your child in
hats, gloves, and warm coats. The temperature will be cold
this next week.
This week we were very busy. We enjoyed learning about the
creation of cities in our young country and immigrants of the late
1800's and early 1900's. We began our lesson on Animal life
cycles in Science, which ties in nicely with our Non-fiction
reading and also our Creative Writing for next week we will write a
brief animal research paper. In Religion, we have enjoyed
continuing the story of Moses after he freed the Isrealites out of
Egypt. It is so exciting also, to apply what we learn in
Reading, to our other subjects.
