Upper Elementary, Week of 1/21

Good Sunday afternoon, families!


This week, we continued with our study of realistic fiction in reading and writing. Students completed their European Explorer projects, and are still wokring hard on their Science Fair and Art Auction projects.


The class has had fun trying to guess the name of my baby. I've returned to giving them clues each week during Science class. They've also been very engaged with the news, staying abreast of impeachment happenings, learning of "falling iguanas" in Florida, and discussing a segment featuring a recent study on less screen time and more reading time for children. They continue to try and get host, Carl Azuz, to give us a "shout out" at the end of his broadcasts.


Students enjoyed reading about the Chinese Lunar New Year. Together, they learned about Chinese traditions and superstitions, as well as the significance of lanterns in Chinese culture. Many tried spring rolls and dumplings for the first time on Friday, and challenged themselves to eat with chopsticks!


I'll be sending an email out with reminders about Wednesday's field trip to the Children's Theater. It's sure to be a great day!


We will plan to walk to the library tomorrow. Please help your child to remember their cards, DGS shirts, and any books they may need to return or renew.
