Reflection: Parent Communication Cosmically Cool Planet Research! Day Four: Researching with Digital and Print Text Continued - Section 5: Home Activity and Snack Request


I have been putting notes in my weekly newsletter about our planet research unit to keep families up to date about our reports, and all of the different steps along the way.  Also, I have links for students to access while at home, to encourage extra-curricular learning.  Today, the students will take home a letter explaining a planet display project to be completed at home.  This is just another way to connect school and home.
