Crew News May 22, 2012

Studying the Soil
Last week we looked more carefully at the dirt samples that the crew brought in. One day we just looked at all the colors that dirt could be. Another day we dug in and touched the dirt to feel all of the different textures - sandy, fine, sticky (clay), dry, etc. We have been surprised at just how many different kinds of dirt there are. This week we are looking at how water drains out of each type of dirt and have more to learn later in the week. Dirt can be so fascinating.

Now is a great time to begin looking around your house and car for books that belong at school. Please help your child gather up any stray school books and return them to school. Your child won't need them in 2nd grade but the new crop of 1st graders definitely will. Also, if you are doing some spring cleaning and have books that your child no longer wants, please consider donating them to our crew library. Thanks.

Reading ~ Read a good book or two.
