     The end of the year is approaching quickly. We will be going on a field trip to the Mebane Conservatory in April. We are learning about the life cycles of animals and plants in our Science class. We have learned that we depend on each other. We want to protect our environment and will be showing how much waste we really make in a week by collecting certain items....toilet paper and paper towel rolls. We will find new ways to reuse these items. 
       We have learned the value of coins and used our addition and subtraction to find out how much money we have. Do we have enough money to buy certain items?We are learning measurement now and use different units of measurement. Our centers are filled with fun practice activities that help to reinforce our math topics.
      We have just finished our last project in Social Studies, by writing a biography of our choice and mounting the paper to a figure illustrating that person and connecting it to the other two classes. It will be displayed in the hall outside of our door.
      In Reading, we are continuing to progress monitor until the final Mclass session. We have been learning different types of poetry such as; shape, haiku, and acrostic to say a few. The students wrote their own poetry. 
      I just want to say that Horning's Crew has really been working hard and I am so proud of the accomplishments of each child. We know that we can conquer any obstacle with hard work and my crew is never afraid to put in the work. Our motto is 

    Good Better Best
    Never Let It Rest 
    Till your Good is Better
    And your Better is BEST!!!!!
