  • Back to school… what do you want to learn this year? What would you like to know more about? What is an investigation that you never understood?
  • Making the family connection: Discuss the slides above.
  • Materials: family learning journals/paper, pencils, colored pencils, and/or crayons. Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
