3A Friday Note

Dear 3A Parents,

Post play we were back to our usual routine this week! Our mathematicians dove back into their geometry work and our poets into poetry writing. In theme yesterday we read 10,000 Dresses, a story about a transgendered child. The children were respectful and thoughtful as we discussed this sensitive topic.

We had a glorious day at the Schuylkill Center! Your children wrote beautiful nature poetry and had a fun time looking for macroinvertebrate at the stream.

We are excited about our upcoming trip to The Baltimore Museum of Industry on Tuesday, May 31! Please download this letter about the trip and the permission form, which must be filled out and returned to us by May 26.

This weekend, ask your child

  • What a dichotomous key is and how we used it to identify macroinvertebrates
  • What we learned about crayfish this week
  • About our work with quadrilaterals and their attributes
  • What we learned about Angel Island from the book Paper Son: Lee’s Journey to America
  • What has been happening to Francisco and his family in our read aloud, The Circuit
  • About the fun obstacle course we did in the gym last Friday afternoon!
  • About our Schuylkill Center Day today

Enjoy the weekend!

Warmly,

Miriam and Josh
