JU-B Weekly Note

Happy Winter Break, JU-B Families!

We’ve had a wonderful week - and fall term - with our bright, curious, and compassionate class. This week included students finishing up their book projects. In the Maniac Magee group we collaborated on a giant map of Two Mills. In the Loser group, students created skits, comics, and more. We held our writing celebration for our God and Goddess biographies. We read about Heracles and combined many of the reading strategies we’ve been studying as we practiced making predictions based on our schema, writing a summary based on the main ideas, and asking relevant questions that help to keep us wondering. When we return, students will work on a short visually based project for the story. We also tackled our Mythbusters reports with most students having completed their rough draft. We’ll finish polishing these in January.

Thank your for sharing your child with us this fall. And thank you for the generous TPSA Holiday Gift Cards. We hope that you have a lovely break full of fun and relaxation. We’ll be very eager to see you all back on January 4th!

Love,

Hilary and Dan
