We were off to a late start today, because we had the priviledge of watching the dress rehearsal of the second grade play. It gives us something to look forward to, and we learned a lot from the information they presented.
We began our Target day with logic puzzles and word bogglers. We then brainstormed the characteristics of a "big hearted person." We read about Thidwick, who carried a number of pesty characters in his antlers, all the while being the perfect host. After this, we learned about the three types of animal relationships: mutualism, parasitism, and commensalism. Be sure to ask your child to explain the differences to you.
We created a "moose," by tracing our hands and then made thumbprint animals who might live in his antlers.
NO HOMEWORK this week. IMPORTANT: THERE WILL BE NO TARGET CLASS ON MAY 11, DUE TO FIELD DAY! OUR LAST CLASS WILL BE ON MAY 18.
