    Land Animals

    Hope you had a great spring break! I know we did! For this week, finish reading the dinosaur chapter. The dinosaur pictures for the map are optional, since dinosaurs are extinct, and our maps are getting full! If they would like, they can add the dinosaur pictures to their dinosaur page that’s going in the portfolio Friday. Just be sure to bring the pictures, and if you did not finish the dinosaur tie book, bring those Friday as well. We’ll finish those up and add them to the notebook. In class Friday, be prepared to tell me which animal you will be doing for your special presentation.

Also, begin reading Whales (p. 19-27).  The memory verse…

    Swimming Creatures

    We had a great class on Friday.  The kids were very well behaved, quite cooperative, and ready to learn.  Encourage them on!  This week’s assignment is listed in the syllabus, which you have in your book, or the link to an online syllabus is listed prior to this post.  Just to make sure we are all on the same week, you should finish reading the first chapter this week.  On Friday, I will review this chapter and send home the test from Lesson 1.  I recommend trying to do the test without the book, but if you see it is too challenging, feel free to make it open book.  I…
