Weekly Highlights

We finished up our study of anatomy and have moved onto a study of emotions.

In CPR, we’re working on a sort-of yearbook called “Who’s Who in CPR?”

We have started typing club to work on keyboarding skills. Kids are able to use typing club at home as we have “premium” accounts. You can find account information for your child here. If your child does not have a media release and is unlisted, you can contact Kalei to get their username/password!

Mr. Chris joined us for CPR on Friday to do a sing-through of the upcoming musical. Please mark your calendars for January 26th, 2016.

Readers Workshop

Whether typically students are in LLI or not, we are all in book club studies right now. We are thinking about characters and character motivation. Book club selections include: Kira-Kira, Al Capone Does My Shirts, Firegirl, Holes, Loser, The Lightning Thief, Becoming Naomi León, and Bud, Not Buddy. Most students have written assignments that they can complete as homework if they are not finished in class.

Writers Workshop

In writers workshop we are finishing up our personal narratives. We’ll be having our publishing party on Friday, November 20th at 9:30am and we invite families to come join us!

Questions to Ask Your Child:

  • What have you been talking about in your book clubs?
  • What are you thinking about as you’re watching Inside Out?
  • What math concepts have you been working on?
