Day 144 - Taking care of the Earth and showcasing our talents! - Mrs. Guttenplan - Memorial ELL Staff

This post first appeared on the Memorial School ELL Blog

With Earth Day on April 22nd, 1st through 5th-grade students have been learning different ways to take care of the environment.  Soon they'll put their language skills to use by delivering persuasive speeches about ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. Meanwhile, K students have been busy studying different fruits and vegetables and writing informational sentences.
