Sadly our tadpoles did not make it this year...they didn't even hatch!  Oh dear...life cycles and all!


This word wall has never been sooooo full!
We took it down this week...we had over 100 words!
I'm sending home a word list for the summer if your child is so inclined to review for next year.  It will be in their summer packet handed out on the last day of school.
We began an art project that had many steps...
a beautiful lily pad complete with a lotus flower!

As you've probably heard, Mrs. Kalmes is retiring.  She gave us some of her blocks! We've been having a great time building structures!

We've also had some real construction work done!
This guy is really removing a shelf we no longer need!
