We talked about the letter R and looked at objects that start with the letter R.

We also talked about plants and planting today.  We thought about what we need to grow plants ,  We planted sunflower seeds and strawberry seeds.  We looked at how big the sunflower seeds were compared to the strawberry seeds.  We also measured our caterpillars to see how much they have grown in a week.  They grow more every day.
