Hi San Tan Families,
What a week we have experienced!
We began our study of insects and have made tiny habitats of plasticine clay for them after watching a National Geographic video. We made clay hardening insects which will be baked over the weekend and then assimilate into their new habitat on Monday. The children wrote facts about insects for their Animal Characteristic Folders which were displayed at the STEM/Science Fair last Friday and which were sent home. We will continue to study and write about reptiles, amphibians, and arachnids. I will save their writing and give them to you at conferences in March, and you may add it to their folders if you wish.
SPELLING WORDS for Friday, February 14 are: bird, girl, dirt, first, chirp. Bonus Words are: shirt, skirt, circle, circus, birthday.
