(4/3) Tuesday Highlights/Homeowrk

++SCIENCE with Mrs. Cecil
We discussed what plants “eat” by looking at the largest plant in the world, the sequoia tree. We took a close up look at a plant’s “mouths” called stomatas. We had a great time looking at the plants and critters our classmates brought in.
Homework: Continue to bring in plants and critters
3rd-6th graders planted seeds of their choosing to take home and care for to see who can grow the biggest and healthiest plant! Care for your plant and bring it back to show off your green thumb!

I’ll bring cups, spoons and napkins. Please send any fruit washed and precut if possible (except pears & bananas) and have your child bring them to a designated table outside the Spanish room at each campus next Monday & Tuesday.

Please send an email with any questions to jlomas2099 and also please clarify any allergies to any of the fruits listed.

Monday Spanish highlights:

1/2 & 3/4 -Students learned Spanish alphabet with animal names and practiced vocabulary with a fun game.

++MUSIC with Mrs. Larsen:

It’s time to think about costumes for the musical. Students will need a white button up shirt and a blue or red handkerchief to tie around their neck (other colors are fine if that’s what you already have). Goodwill is a great place to look for a button up shirt. Please have these by the first Tuesday in May.
*Grades 3-6 Recorders homework is to work on the 2nd line of Jonah’s Remorse. Today we worked on line one and attempted singing some harmony. Please run through lines!!!
Have a great week!
