Today we finished our letter to one of next years future first graders telling them what they will learn and do next year when they are in first grade!  Our first grade memory book is almost complete!!

We had a live Trivial Pursuit gameshow in the auditorium!  We answered questions on all the subjects we covered this year!

We read the book Fish is Fish.  We discussed the moral of the story and how this book is similar to the other Leo Lionni books we have read.

We practiced labeling the parts of a plant and completed a year end science review packet.  Please review the packet at home- we will be taking our end of the year science test tomorrow.

Every morning we write in our journals for 25 minutes. 

When writing we learned how to CHECK 5: punctuation, spacing, capitals, spelling, and neatness. Ask your child how they use their "hand" to help them remember!
