Land of READ-A-LOT

Maidens and Lords prepared for our introduction to slavery through simulation questions!! We will be reading and reflecting in journals next week on various experiences that slaves encountered.

Missions in Math

The Kingdom has been digging deeply into geometry. Students explored several different polygons to begin the study, but have moved into finding and naming attributes that polygons share.

Soaring in Social Studies

Students continue their quest of four Americans who not only improved their communities, but who also changed and helped our entire country! Through video footage and peer reading, the students have been collecting facts and details on each important historical figure!
