It seems like time is really flying by now, where has the week gone!? As the year draws to a close we are doing our best to keep our normal daily routines but making sure we take some time to stop and celebrate all our growth. One way we have done that this week is through the preparation of a special reader’s theater version of La oruga muy hambrienta (The Very Hungry Caterpillar) that we would like to share with you next week. Each child has their own special part as well as some all group parts and we are eager to share! We had a dress rehearsal today in front of our third grade buddies and thoroughly enjoyed it! We invite you to come see us on Thursday, May 28th at 2:45pm. We will share the story and sing a song or two.
Are you all set for our trip to the Critter Barn or June 2? We are very excited about it and more information will come home Tuesday so you can read through some of the details of this all day celebration.

Looking Ahead: 2015-2016 GRCS Calendar
This week during language arts we have been working on a special reader’s theater of La oruga muy hambrienta (The Very Hungry Caterpillar). We are working hard on our lines and excited to share this with parents on Thursday, May 28th at 2:45pm.
In Math, we explored measuring weight. We used balances to find objects that were equal to each other and then find the weight of various objects in cubes.
This week in Bible we read more of Jesus’ parables including the Lost Sheep, the Pharisee and the Tax Collector and the Sower and Seeds. We are becoming very good at listening closely and thinking about what Jesus wants us to learn from his stories.
This week we planted some of our own seeds so that we can watch them grow. We also designed an experiment to find out what plants really need to grow. Many children are eager to see if our plant in the dark cupboard will grow or our seeds with water but no dirt will grow. We have made our predictions and eagerly await the results!
