See What We're Doing

  Our class is beginning to study trees. We’ll be observing and comparing trees to learn about what lives in them, what they’re made from and who cares for them.  We hope that this study will help children explore and appreciate nature.  As we study trees, we will use literacy, math, the arts, and technology to explore the topic in depth. We will learn important social studies and scientific concepts through first hand investigations.

Home Project: We will be sending home a bag for you to put items in that you may find as you and your child take a “tree walk”. Please collect things that have fallen from the trees, such as leaves, bark, acorns, twigs, flowers, fruit, or cones. Please send the bag back with your child and we will make a collage in our classroom to talk about the items.
