Unit 3: Lesson 4:  Places to Live
1. Habitat***A place where a particular plant or animal lives.
Main Idea:
1. In Ferriday, we live in a area where the climate is rainy, gets cold in the winter, and is very hot in the summer months.
2. In our habitat plants meet their needs by getting sunlight, soil, and having animals around them.
3. We have animals in our habitat like squirrels, rabbits, deer, snakes, frogs, dogs, and cats.
4. Most of these animals eat other animals, nuts, or grass.
5. Plants are able to live in dry places by storing water in their leaves.  Plants in wet places have leaves that shed water.

Science: Unit 3 Lessons 3: How Animals Grow and Change
1. Life cycle**tell how an animal starts life, grows to be an adult, has young, and dies.
2. tadpole**a young frog that is hatched from an egg.

4. pupa**when the butterfly is still in it's shell.
Review Questions
1.  Mammals have live babies and other animals lay eggs.
2. A frog is an amphibian because it lives both in water and on land.

Welcome back to school.  My name is Aquanetta Lawrence and thank you for allowing me to be your child's teacher this year.  I will be working with him/her in Math and Science.
Please follow the homework packet every week to give your child extra practice in each subject I teach.  Also, let your child read to you daily, practice their math facts for fluency, and parents sign off on the conduct calendar daily to track your child's behavior.
My planning period is daily from 1:20 to 1:30.  You may call the school at 318-757-3293 to schedule an appointment.
