Getting lost in a great book!
Happy March Weekend!

The sun is shinning! The kids are smiling and we actually heard a few birds chirping this week on the playground. Maybe the warm weather will show up soon.

Most of our week was focused on our Explorer research and writing. The students are fully engaged in turning their note taking into interesting pieces of writing about their explorer's life and accomplishments. With the help of a graphic organizer on their Google drives, they are typing and organizing their thinking. 
HOOKED!

As you all know, a lot of our afternoons this week were spent learning about human development. I was very proud of our two classes as the nurses mentioned and I noticed, how mature the students questions and thinking were. They were very respectful of each other and what was being taught...GREAT JOB TO ALL!
The joy of reading

Next week we will continue with our explorer work as well as focus on finding the "theme" in the books that we enjoy. We will discuss what the theme is and how an author fits this life lesson into a piece of writing. We will also be preparing for our colonization kick-off with Colony Craft Day next Thursday. Please help your child start to prepare to go back in time with their choice of clothes for the day.                                        
Enjoy your weekend!
