3A Friday Note

Dear 3A Parents,

Our transition week ended on a high note! The children embraced an academic choice project time this afternoon to showcase their knowledge about the seed cycle in all sorts of creative ways. They created skits, a song, drawings, models, and wrote stories. I was proud of them and they had lots of fun while doing purposeful work.

Please remember that we leave first thing in the morning on Monday for the Churchville Nature Center. We will not be able to wait for children who are late so we'll appreciate if you can plan accordingly.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as can make it at our writing celebration on Tuesday morning at 8:45.

I want to bring your attention to an event that is happening tomorrow afternoon at the Waterworks. If you have the time it would be a great supplement to our study of the Lenape: “Harvesting History: Philadelphia before the Europeans Arrived," November 14 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM. | Free Learn about the original residents of Philadelphia and their reliance on local rivers and streams. We will learn about their culture, lifestyle and diet and about the local environment thousands of years before European settlers arrived. You can weave a mat of natural materials like the Lenni Lenape did! (Sessions run every 30 minutes.)

This weekend ask you child about:

  • his or her seed cycle project
  • the seed soak investigation
  • the Lenape Creation myth
  • the new Encuentro song
  • the base five number system
  • our preparation for Tuesday's writing celebration
  • the Nutcracker performance by Philadelphia Dance Academy (and brava to Siena for her lovely performance!)

Have a great weekend!

Warmly,

Miriam
