There was definitely a shift felt between October and November this week in Morado. We started the week with a spooky picnic lunch celebrating Halloween to focusing on elections and voting later in the week. Spooky lunch was a lot of fun: students had a picnic lunch in Morado with Mr. Ben reading some slightly spooky stories next to a campfire on an ipad.
Another highlight of the week was Ms. Mary talking about the presidential election and what the president does. She then read a few stories from the Frog and Toad series by Arnold Lobel, with the students thinking about which character would be a better president. The class then made lists of both good and bad qualities of each candidate and submitted questions for a debate later in the week. During the debate, Ms. Mary used puppets of the characters and answered the questions how she felt the characters would answer, with Mr. Ben and some students acting as moderators. Students ended the week by making campaign posters for who they wanted to vote for. The class will hold elections on Tuesday.
Other lessons this week were lessons on different organs with Mr. Ben, with some students doing mini research projects on different organs, and students learning more angles with Ms. Mary in geometry.
