First-graders have been drawing a still life with oil pastels and studying the work of Henri Matisse. In science, they are developing the skills of observation, data collection and prediction. They used seeds and plants to develop thinking skills. Book orders are due Friday.
Second- and third-graders are working in literature centers with guided and independent reading, word journals and researching the life cycle of a plant. They have weighed fruits and vegetables in science lab, collected data and observed plants under a microscope.
