Love is in the air

Kindness week

Kindness Week

We had 7th and 8th graders come down each day to show us kindness in different ways. Some read books to us. Some played math games with us. Some helped us catch up on our Goal graph. Some helped us graph conversation hearts. This is truly community when learners are helping learners.

Our Valentine's Party

Mystery Reader

Thanks to Mrs. Scott for being our mystery reader this week. The students loved it!

Shared Reading

For shared reading over the last two weeks, we have been reading Coretta Scott King book Award winners. The Coretta Scott King Book Awards are given annually to outstanding African American authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults that demonstrate an appreciation of African American culture and universal human values. The students are writing summaries of the chosen titles and we are placing the books on a timeline. This is our contribution to the African American Museum that Community 6 has organized and inspired us to participate in.
