It's Cold, Y'all! (Sometimes)
We do our best to get outside as much as possible (for recess, garden, applying our learning in unique settings), so please send students with a warm coat, snow boots, as well as something to cover hands and heads everyday. If you would like help getting any of these items, please let us know, and we will coordinate warm attire.
Cinderella made her debut in both a rockin' roll and rap songs. "Going to the house... going to the house... what?!"
Students collaborating to retell the story Anansi and the Sky King with frozen scenes.
New Movie Just Released!
Students used an iMovie trailer to show off their version of "Three Billy Goats Gruff."
Thank you for this, too!
We can't imagine doing this without you! Y'all are the best.
We're starting an inquiry-based unit on immigration and the regions of the United States! This unit will provide opportunities for students to learn more about themselves, their country, as well as rights and responsibilities as a citizen. As a part of this unit, we hope to incorporate family's immigration stories - as well as encouraging Native perspectives, forced migration, and experiences outside of immigration - and we look forward to partnering with you during this unit. We welcome your questions!
Students will complete a realistic fiction story and begin a nonfiction writing project linked to our Social Studies content.
Over the next six weeks students will explore nonfiction texts. They will learn to summarize a text by identifying the main idea and supporting with evidence from the text. Also students will be closely reading several primary and secondary sources while sharpening their skills to source, contextualize, and corroborate information.
Third graders are wrapping up addition and subtraction with 3-digit numbers and will soon launch into 2-D geometry. They be highlighting ways to calculate perimeter, area, and identify angles. Fourth graders completed a unit on data; students are now working on their number sense in multiplication and division.
