One of Third Grade's Wit and Wisdom lessons this week had students creating a tableau (models or motionless figures representing a scene from a story or from history) from Moonshot by Brian Floca. The students loved completing this activity and were very creative in how they chose to show scenes from the book!

First grade students have learned about their teeth this week. They learned how to care for them, why baby teeth are important, and what happens at a dentist appointment. Students made diagrams of a tooth and wrote a short paragraph about their new knowledge. Wow, 1st graders are writing paragraphs! Great work!
