Dear Family Member:
This week our class will focus on things that we can observe in nature. We will be discussing how we investigate the questions we have about our observations, including the methods and tools we might use.
Here are some activities that you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we’ll be practicing.
You and your child will read a short story. Then your child will read a list of the events leading up to the story. Your child will number the events to arrange them in the sequence that makes sense.
