Phew! Three more weeks have passed! The week prior to Thanksgiving Break, we wrote our final essay for our neuroscience unit. If students did not finish it, anyone could come in to work during lunch the week after Thanksgiving Break. This past week, we updated each other on how our 20-Day challenge is going - many of our updates are located here - check them out and leave comments to support our efforts! We then completed a "quest" - to help us understand more of the brain and how it works in those who have injuries or afflictions. During the quest, we did not collect grades - we worked on perseverance (with difficult texts and questions), adaptability (when our ideas were challenged), and collaboration with others in two different groupings. Ask you child about his or her experiences.
Simply email me to come into class in person or via Skype. We'd love to hear book talks (suggestions for good books) or picture books (read aloud by YOU). We hope to see you in class this year!
