Over the next 2-3 weeks, we will focus on spring, birds and Easter activities. Second and third grade classes will host a Career Day during an a.m. enrichment block, so that will impact some of our planned activities for this unit.
Note: Activities will vary widely depending on the time allotted and class involved.
