TAG Times

Clear Creek Edition, October 2015

4th and 5th Grade Reading

Our Tag readers have been working on a project about the brain. Ask your child if they can tell you about Growth and Fixed Mindsets. We have been watching videos and reading about how the brain learns new things. We have learned that we are never too old to learn something new. Projects are due on November 5.

Check out this video.

CREATIVITY/ART

The Creativity/Art group are creating posters for the Jim Claypool Conservation contest. They need to be completed and turned in to me by November 19. If your child would like for their poster to be sent on for the contest, they need to have the Contest Entry Form completed, which includes a parent's signature.
