 (sounding like "a" like in EIGHT and NEIGHBOR).

Reading:
 
We will read books about the life cycle of tadpoles and our poem of the week, "Five Little Tadpoles".

Writing: We will have fun writing fictional stories about frogs and step up to writing stories about what we are learning about frogs.

Math: 
This week, we will learn how to measure! Students will learn how to use a ruler and practice measuring items. We will also begin our new math journals. Every day, we will have a critical thinking math story problem to answer in our math journals. I will be asking students to "explain their thinking" and how they solved their problems.

Leadership: Our leadership theme for the month of March and April is INGENUITY.
