This Week in Morado, children were getting math lessons and finishing up on the follow-ups from weekly lessons. Every student is practicing math at least 20 mins a day. They are also exploring other areas of curriculum by reading literature books and having discussions with their groups. We will be moving away from Great Lessons and learn more in-depth with science experiments, observations, language lessons and geometry.
On Thursday, children did an Earthquake Drill at 10:15 am. This was both school-wide and state-wide in order to prepare the children for natural disasters.
Finally, the teachers got together and prepared the school for Harvest Fest, and Elementary students were seen during recess playing on the hay bales and building a maze.
A few things to note:
1st graders will be joining the K 's for nature club on Thursdays and Fridays.
Our first sharing for the year is on this Friday; please remind your child to bring something that's
meaningful for them and fits in the backpack.
Picture Day for Morado is on October 29th; both individual and classroom pictures will be taken. No costumes.
Our first field trip to Seattle Art museum is on November 6th. We need volunteers to drive children; so please sign-up on Bloomz. It will be a lot of fun.
Have a good day,
Ben, Mary, & Khavitha
