March 20-24

Art Adventures:

Students are learning about several pieces of art through the Minneapolis Institute of Art's Art Adventures program.  We will go to the institute in April to view the pieces, but it might be a fun destination to visit during spring break and it's FREE!

Guided Reading Groups continue to work hard each week.  We will begin our next unit on "Non-fiction Chapter Books" in Writer's Workshop soon.   Writers will learn how to write their own teaching book about a topic. 

Students will go to Mrs. Engstrom's Room to learn about our next Science unit where they will learn about Penguins and the physical characteristics that help their bodies live in different environments.  


Looking ahead- we will begin our chapter about money on March 31.  Students will need the bag of coins which was requested on the supply list at the beginning of the year.

8 quarters, 10 dimes, 10 nickels, and 25 pennies
