Reading: . Please refer to your child's planner for specific homework. Every Tuesday (unless a schedule change) Scholastic NEWS/weekly reader is assigned. This is due each Thursday.
We participate in the EastConn Learning Lands multidistrict grant - Coventry, Sterling and Windham MS students join our MMS students for low-ropes adventure challenge, studies of the vernal pool, and birding. We also participate in the CT River to Salmon School program. We'll raise 200 wild Atlantic salmon eggs and release the young fish into the CT River in May. Our next Learning Lands date is April 3rd with Coventry MS to explore our MMS vernal pool and identify various obligate and facultative species.
Science overview: Now that CMT's are finished, we are back to Health. We begin with Science, Tobacco and You. We'll explore how smoking affects the nervous and circulatory systems of our bodies. This involves a video component, computer, big book and hands-on learning. This is a beautiful tie to our Grade 5 Good Decisions lessons with State Trooper Woodward.
