This week we will attempt to answer that question.
Shared Storytime: Too Many Carrots by Katy Hudson (plus others if time allows)
Tumble Time: Duck! Rabbit!
Let's learn about carrots: How many of these carrots have you tried?
Learning activities will include either a math or literature response depending on grade level.
Take away (literally): DIY carrot decoration or treat holder. A little something to keep you busy over spring break.
Oh and one more thing - Boomer Wednesday returns this week. Mr. B. is ready to come walk the halls like a RIVER Role Model.
The next two weeks leading up to spring break will be busy!
The week of March 20th, we celebrate CAREER WEEK during the 2 hour morning blocks and with some of our classes away on field trips this week. Oh, and don't forget about VOTING in the Media Center on March 21st.
