We had a lot of guest teachers this week – Ms. Steph teaching us meditation, a group of IU students teaching about biodiversity, and our friends from Books and Beyond came in for our final session to make sure we formatted and edited all of our documents correctly.
We are midway through project work in P3. Our project asks students to pick an issue they feel strongly about, and then use the constitution to reflect on a party platform as it relates to that issue. You can see a master document of parties/platforms that Mr. Scott used several weeks ago with our class. Students are choosing a medium to communicate content and opinion on this issue.
Homework this week will be prep for book clubs. If your child is in LLI, they do not need to do the writing components of the book club work unless they have time to do so!
We will be seeing Oliver on December 22nd at the Buskirk Chumley! We are asking that families contribute $6.50 for this trip if they are able. No child will be prevented from going due to an inability to pay. If you are able to give more than $6.50 to fund another kiddo, please let us know!

Questions to Ask Your Child at Home:
- What styles of meditation did you learn last week?
- What is your thesis for your essay? What are your reasons?
- How is your P3 project coming along? How will you convince others who think differently than you that they should value your perspective?
- What is happening in the read aloud, First Light?
