In other areas, children had lessons on adverbs, prepositions, fractions, and measuring perimeter. They discussed literature circle books and chose new ones. Some discussed theme while others debated the morality of the characters (is it ever okay to steal? How about if you're a fox? How about if your family will starve if you don't?) and others discussed figurative language.
Next week, the children will prepare food for a dinner at Mary’s Place and sixth graders present their Island Projects Friday, June 2 at 6:00. We recommend bringing your children to experience this upper elementary final project in which they create an entire civilization.
