Systems Museum

Thank you all for coming to our Systems Museum! The Oaks were thrilled to show off everything they have learned about living and non-living systems. If you were unable to attend, the projects will be up next week. Feel free to stop by at drop-off or pick-up.

Next visit to Clinton Hill Library: Thurs 3/24

We will revisit the Clinton Hill Library on Thursday, March 24th to return books and check out new ones. Please help your child remember their books and library card on this day.

Oak Room

Save the date! The Oak Room Carnival plans are underway. Please plan to visit the Oak Room on this day with your family!

Carnival Update

The Oaks have narrowed down what the different booths and games will be. They are very excited to make and provide food and beverages. Today we made a list of all the foods and drinks that could be at the carnival. (We encouraged them to think of something healthy for every not so healthy food.) Soon grown up family members will have the opportunity to spend time with us at school as we get ready!

In Writing Workshop we edited our work again, but this time focusing on punctuation: periods for simple facts, exclamation points for when something is awesome/exciting, question marks for questions, colons at the start of a list, and commas after each word in the list.

OVER THE WEEKEND PLEASE HELP YOUR CHILD FIND A PHOTO OR PICTURE RELATED TO THE TOPIC THEY ARE WRITING ABOUT. Please have them bring it in on Monday. If you do not have access to a printer, email a link to pascale@brooklyncompass.org.

This week we continued our geometry unit by thinking of what shapes can be used to create rhombuses, trapezoids, and hexagons.
