Highlights from this week:
The Boy Who Cried Wolf - What a great production! Thank you to families and Steph for scrambling together drivers and chaperones so we could go. The performers were talented, and the show was fast-paced and engaging. We even had a a cameo on stage with one of our classmates (Miles was the 2nd course to the wolf!). Students enjoyed the sheep who were funny, and had many questions about the costumes. Overall, we would definitely recommend it to friends and family!
Irish dancing - In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we had a troop of you Irish dancers come. Check out the video!
Unity Celebration - Students earned another Unity Celebration for Monday, March 20th by following routines, getting compliments from Ms. Roy and other teachers for exceptional behavior around the school, cleaning together and working together! We will celebrate by watching Wall-E in the afternoon and eating popcorn in our pajamas with a stuffy that can fit in a backpack. Thank you to all the hard work by the students!
Poetry - Students looked at repetition and onomatopoeias as they created poems about wonders they have in the world.
Math - Students took the test in arrays and did some problem solving with a 3-Act problem. Here is the link to the first act and third act:1st https://youtu.be/Nlt9CLAlmp0 and 3rd - https://youtu.be/IrSP099jb6Q. Three-act problem solving is a type of math problem that is supposed to encourage students to create questions and think about the tools they need to use using a video or image.

Reading - Students started partner reading, reading the same book along with a partner. This facilitates opportunities to talk about books, ask questions and drive interest in new chapter books. As students grow as readers, they read more and more complex books. Having a partner can help students keep track of plot, characters and the growing complexity of conflicts in chapter books. Partner reading is also a precursor to our book club unit, and the kids love it!
