This Week in Review - March 20 - 24
This information will be found in Walter's weekly email:
In math class this week, we continued working on multiplication and division, as well as making progress in
the Singapore Math books. Children are enjoying using the concept of arrays to make city scenes (buildings with
a set number of windows depending on dice rolls).
We also had a special game day with Elaine's class on Friday,
and taught them the ever-popular Guess/Digit/Place game.
Writing time was filled with making progress on our workshop pieces - some children are illustrating, some are
proof-reading, others are on to new projects. We are nearing the end of our current chapter book -
With our current theme of sustainability, we started our big seed project. For the next few weeks we will
be learning different techniques of seed saving. On Wednesday morning, Catie, a Water Quality Specialist from
Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner's Office, visited. We will be working with her to build a rain
garden in the ditch near the playground. This works so well with both our current theme of sustainability as
well as our science lab lessons with Shan on Ecology (how things in nature interact with each other, and
biotic v.s. abiotic).
