Thank You to the parents who accompanied us to the Seattle Art Museum. The trip capped a week full of explorations in many directions: stories of constellations, a model of solstices and equinoxes, the magic of multiplying by multiples of 10, learning the countries of Europe, and printmaking. My favorite moment was when the literature circle books were unveiled and the children had animated discussions about them. The adults could have left the room and they would have carried on just the same.
The children are also beginning to think about performing in the variety show at Kindergarten-Elementary Family night. Some are preparing songs and some writing poetry. We thought it would be fun to make sock puppets, since socks are the night’s theme. Please send in clean socks of all sizes that you no longer need. Also, remember that we will be collecting new pairs of socks for Mary’s Place that night. This will kick off our holiday drive to collect all sorts of necessities for the people Mary’s Place serves. http://www.marysplaceseattle.org/
Turn Friday the 13th into a lucky day by coming to Family Night!
