1TD will be reading non fiction articles about influential people this week. I have several articles for the kids to choose from including Leonardo da Vinci,  Louis Braile,  Rachel Carson, Jane Goodall, and Helen Keller. We will be discussing what these influential people have in common during our time together. 

2TD will spend the week learning about coding using Bee Bots.  I have a variety of challenges for the kids to complete using these robots. 

3PA will continue working on Creative Problem Solving using fairy tales this week. 

4PA will create a Google Slide Show this week about the novel Call it Courage and the Newbery winner they self selected.  The slides will highlight the criteria used by the Newbery committee and the kids will share their opinions on the worthiness of each book. 

5PA will finish their group projects on The Crossover and Brown Girl Dreaming this week.  The projects will be shared in class on Friday.
