It is hard to believe that we are now into our last nine weeks of the year. I know that time flies by for adults, but even the children have said that this year went by fast.

In math, we are studying time to the hour and half-hour. The children did so well on their pre-test, so I hope to spend some time learning simple elapsed time. For example, if it is 7:00 and you tell your child they will be going to bed in one hour, ask them what time will they go to bed? If you say dinner is in thirty minutes, ask them what time will dinner be?

In science, we will begin our study of plants. We will learn that they have basic life needs, such as air, water, light and a place to grow (soil). We will also learn the parts of a plant: seeds, roots, stems, leaves, blossoms, flowers, and fruits. Plants can be edible and nonedible, flowering and nonflowering, and evergreen or deciduous.

Thank you Mrs. Stinnett and Mrs. Bailey for sending in some goodies for our “Pamper Me” basket that will be auctioned off at the spring festival. We need lots of goodies to make our basket awesome!!

Special Dates:

**Science fair is Tuesday in the cafeteria from 4-6.

**Thursday is spring picture day. We will be taking individuals and class pictures. Send in your child’s money as soon as possible.

**April 7th at 1:30 is our spring social. Our class is responsible for cookies. You if can send in some, please let Mrs. Campbell know so we can know how many we can plan on for the children.

 

Thanks,

Mrs. Bumgarner
