Weekly Notes: November 13, 2020
Tr. Mingh's Kindergarteners Host Gathering
Tr. Mingh's students read what they had written and drawn about autumn. They sang an acorn song and a pumpkin song. Great job! Thanks, students and Trs. Mingh, Andrea, and Amelia!
Tr. Jill's 2nd Graders Learn Math Outdoors
Tr. Jill's 2nd graders have math class outdoors, just like when they are in the classroom. She writes the problem on her white board, and students do their work on their own white boards.
Tr. Karen's 5th and
6th Grade Students
are an Editor's Circle

Tr. Karen has devised "Editor's Circle" specifically to give students practice writing and using language, while at the same time exercising their imagination and appealing to their sense of humor. Pictured are Tr. Karen 5th and 6th grade students enthusiastically engaged in Editor's circle during language Arts class. Thanks, Tr. Karen!
Tr. Zak's 4th Graders
Prepping for their Gathering next week, Tr. Zak's 4th graders work distanced and masked, but very much together.
3rd Graders with Trs. Dee and Steve
A chilly, wet Friday is a perfect time to read a story. Tr. Dee picks the perfect books. Tr. Steve teaches art on the porch. Beautiful work, third graders!
Pre-K Welcomes a New Student
Please welcome new Pre-K student, Maggie Fowler. Maggie is Emma Fowler's sister (1st grade). Please add Maggie's name to your Directory.

Maggie joined the class on a leaf walk, after reading "We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt," by Steve Metzenger. We then did leaf math by counting and sorting. 

Also, the children learned about wool. Thanks to Tamara Suber and Santiago (and their sheep), we had some wool for the children to explore. They made their own "sheep" to take home.
