We began our unit on money!  Your child can earn a money pencil if they can identify the four main coins (quarter, dime, nickel, penny) and tell me their value. 

We have learned important facts about these coins and have done some adding of simple amounts together. Next week we will continue to work on coin addition.  Please help your child practice with any loose change that may be on hand.

We completed an experiment with celery and colored water to see how important water is to plants, how it travels through the plant, and what can happen to a plant that does not get water.


 Growth and maturity.
