Reinforcement Research:  Each week, K5 will be given a research question pertaining to the week’s unit.  Take a minute to research it with your child and discuss it.  Find the answer, tell your teacher and share it with the class.  Have fun!  This week’s research question is: Can you name all 4 oceans?

Announcements:
