This past week we kicked off the second case study of our expedition. We spent the week building background knowledge about the Maasai and the savanna. This coming week, students break into expert groups. Each group will have a kick-off experience. Some groups will go on fieldwork; others will make and build in the classroom. Be on the lookout for specific information, such as permission slips or information about clothing to wear, from your child’s group as we work on this project

As a reminder, Friday is pajama day. If your child chooses to wear pajamas, he or she should wear school-appropriate pajamas and shoes.

This week in math we did subtraction and addition. We worked on story problems. We did story problems with basically every story that every kid did. That was fun.
