Weekly Highlights

This week we worked on finishing up several unit projects. In Ancient Civilizations work, students finished stations work or they worked on a project of their own creation. We had many kids opt to build one of the architectural wonders of the ancient world.

In writers workshop, one group finished writing essays on whether or not we should have homework. Another group worked to further their consultation of sources and stated claims that were supported with reasons.

On Friday we saw Mary Poppins at the Buskirk Chumley and had some of the best seats in the house. Students sang along with the cheerful lyrics.

We finished our read aloud of Rats! We’ve been having some great conversations about these fabulous rodents.

We’ve been talking a lot about documentation projects in class. Kids contributed to our Argument Writing display – please come in after winter break to take a look!

Please rehearse songs from our upcoming play (January 26th) by singing along with these tracks over break.
