January 27th, 2017

Hi folks!  Another week has flown by at the Open School.  This week we have been working on monitoring for meaning through reading texts about bumble bees.  We then created mini-posters on the life cycle of a bumble bee, which we shared at Community Circle, and then turned into a hallway display.  Come check them out!

Science classes are in full swing, too.  Each 4/5 advisor is teaching a different science class, and 4th and 5th graders will have the opportunity to take two of them.  Per is teaching Newton's Laws of Physics, Kristie is teaching Plant Science and Food Chains, and I am teaching Geology.  Ask your student about their science class.

Also, students have two homework assignments.  The color personality survey was due yesterday, but some students still have to turn it in.  The What Matters To Me Brainstorming is due on Monday.  Support your student in completing these if they have not, as we are doing work with them next week in school.

Have a great weekend,
