Reminder: Swimming field trip forms are due next Wednesday
The kids started the day off in French class where they were handing in their projects. Students then could work on their literature circle reading/roles or their poems or their Aztec suns. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, it was more of the same with the exception that people could work on their Albanesi cards if they were finished everything. After lunch, students had time to work on their science fair projects. (Only one more week until they are due.) We ended the day talking about some of the more challenging/confusing words from the play.
Reminder: French project is due tomorrow.
Circle of Power and Respect started our day today. The students went into their literature circle groups to do their roles and start work on next weeks reading and roles (due next Tuesday. ) We then practiced three songs before read aloud. After recess, we practiced three more songs and then students worked on their invitations for the student led conferences next week. (They should finish and deliver those to you this evening. Please register at Student Led. We then headed to the gym where we played king’s court badminton for our final badminton class. After lunch, students had time to work on their passion projects. We ended the day by practicing three more songs and then some of the students finished their invitations or worked on their Albanesi cards.
Reminders: Please return the form that indicates whether you will be returning to the school next year as quickly as possible. Thanks!
Lit. Circle Round II due tomorrow. Encouragement Speeches Round II due May 12th. Know Lines and Songs for the play by May 17th. Haibun and Rounds due Friday.
Our class meeting started the day today. We then listened to three songs and then students did the Math4today test and then worked on their Albanesi cards. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, we listened to three more songs and then I talked about the sonnet (students do not have to write one) and we talked/sand some rounds. Students do not have to write an entire round but it would be nice if they did. After lunch, we did our second last class of badminton. We ended the day with time for students to work on their science projects. (Due: Wednesday, May 3rd; and that is fast approaching!)
Our Earth Day Assembly started our day today. The kids did a great job with the song! We then did book exchange and Daily Physical Activity. We then started the Pluto story from Auggie and Me: Wonder Stories. After recess, we talked about the Haibun. We then did a quick walk down to the park where we sat and observed nature. Some students selected another moment about nature in their lives and that was fine too. We then started appreciation circle before lunch. After lunch, we finished appreciation circle and then we did some additions to our script. We ended the day doing our first read through of the play.
Wear green or blue for Earth Day tomorrow! Very important notice home today. Please note that the class organization is based on our projected student numbers that we have received from the district. Our actual numbers in September I’m sure will be different and we will not have to do this particular organization and stay true to the Montessori philosophy. This is a good thing, the restored contract language will mean smaller class sizes and more help for all of our students. Please return the form that was attached on that notice.
Daily Physical Activity and Circle of Power and Respect started our day today. Students then worked on their literature circles for next week or their Aztec suns while we continued with auditions. We finished the Julian Chapter in the Auggie Stories book before recess and the kids voted to continue with the Auggie stories for read aloud. After recess, the kids worked on Math4today and their Albanesi cards while we finished auditions. The casting is now complete for our play; like I said before keep June 1st free on your calendars. After lunch, we did our song practice for the assembly tomorrow. We then discussed the notice that was going home before the kids were off to French class where the students ended their day.
Please join us this Friday morning for the Earth Day Assembly. Also please join us the following Friday for the Parent Tea.
The students started their day off in French class where they worked on their alien family projects. When they returned to class we started some auditions while the kids worked on their literature circle for next week or their Aztec suns. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, we did more of the same as before recess. After lunch, the kids were typing their goals. We ended the day with time to work on their science projects and a few more auditions.
Please bring a flash drive for tomorrow. Auditions start tomorrow!
Circle of Power and Respect started our day today. We then did our first round of literature circles. Round II is next week. Please have your readings and roles done. Read aloud was before recess.
