Celebrate Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss wrote many books filled with rhyming words and silly characters.  But he taught many great lessons in his stories so we can live a better life. His birthday was on March 2nd.

Aloha Parents,

All the students are amazed at their plants that are growing so quickly! Some of them are a bit overwatered, but that's okay.  On the weekends, the little plants can dry out a bit. The plan is to watch and write about the growth of their plants until Friday, March 20th, when the students will have the opportunity to explain about 'Plants and Me' at the Learning Showcase.  Hope you will be able to attend one of the two sessions: 9:30-9:50 or 10:30-10:50.

We will be creating a map to show things we get from plants. Each child is asked to bring in 1 or 2 pictures from magazines or their own drawings about 5x5 inches in size.  For instance, from corn we get gas, oil, adhesives, wax paper, Softsoap, Windex, etc. From tomatoes, we get ketchup, salsa, etc. From trees, we get pencils, wooden spoons, paper bags, etc. Your child will be sharing and explaining their pictures to their classmates. Pictures are due by Monday, March 16th.

Friendly reminders:
  • Tuesday, March 10th - Spring Portrait background choice form due. Individual pictures taken in the Gym.  Please dress your child appropriately.
  • Thursday, March 12th - Spring Higan Service Temple Service. Please dress your child appropriately.
  • Monday, March 16th - 'How do we use plants?' pictures due.
  • Friday, March 20th - Learning Showcase - 'Plants and Me'.  School dismissal at 11:30.
  • Monday, March 30th - March Book Share, MyOn, and IXL (Categories K {Positions} and Q {Measurement}) due
Mrs. Lee
