Today we read an informational text about spring. We focused on learning about spring weather, animals in spring and plants in spring. We noticed the text features, specifically the headings, content page, information boxes, bold print words and labels. We know authors use these text features to help the reader understand and organize the content better. We wrote about spring, using a heading, labels, and bold print words. Ask me what I learned about spring!
In honor of Women's History Month, and as part of our science unit about habitats, we read The Tree Lady - The True Story of How One Tree-Loving Lady Changed a City Forever, by H. Joseph Hopkins. This is the true story of Katherine Olivia Sessions, who loved trees but moved to San Diego when there were no trees in the late 1800's. She began researching trees and plants that would thrive in the desert climate of San Diego and changed the city park later known as Balboa Park from a place people grazed cows and threw their trash in to a beautiful oasis of plants and trees.
I hope everyone had fun in the snow!
