March Rolls in like a Lion...and goes out like a Lamb!

This week we talked a lot about the different types of weather in March. We specifically focused on how March can sometimes feel like a "lion:" it can be cold and windy, or in can sometimes feel like a "lamb," and be warm and comfortable! 

We tracked the weather for the week, and so far we have had all "lion" days. Hopefully we will get some "lamb" days soon! 



Procedural Shares:

This week we finished up our procedural shares during morning meeting. We learned so much about how to do all different types of things!!
