The children exploded into activity after selecting a continent to study: Morado has that classic lower elementary look, with piles of books everywhere. The continent study is part of a larger exploration we are beginning of how people satisfy their needs.
The children reminded themselves of what they are working on in math. One child commented, "It feels as though we are starting over!" They've got their groove back though. This week for our literature circles, everyone read fairytales and then we discussed the common features. Next week we'll begin a new three-week stretch reading self-chosen books.
· Please attend our celebration of the continents at 9 am Friday, January 22.
· Please sign up on Bloomz for observing in the classroom this month and for attending a conference February 5.
· Our Art specialist will help the children create self-portraits Wednesday, January 13.
