THANK YOU!!

Thank you so much for all the amazing treats and goodies during Teacher Appreciation week! On Monday, you showered me with so many beautiful flowers. Tuesday, I received my favorite treats and snacks to last for quite some time! Wednesday you helped refill some our needs in the classroom with items such as post it notes and dry erase markers. Then Thursday, the notes and kind words written by the kids were so sweet. Finally, Friday the gift card to Starbucks and to get Massage was the perfect treat! I can't wait to start my summer off with a Massage:) Thank you again for a wonderful school year and for being such supportive and amazing parents!

City Planning Presentation

After learning about the decisions and considerations that go into planning a city, students worked as a table to plan the perfect city. They first named their city, placed roads and water sources in their city. Then, they worked to decide what businesses they would need in their city and the placement for each business. Finally, they included housing and other recreational activities. Once their city was complete they presented their city and their rationale for each decision to the other groups.
