3-5 PA E Learning Week One

In PA, we think differently.  This is one of the core values of the program. So, we will be thinking differently in the coming weeks.  To start out this three day school week, I am thinking differently too.  While our regular curriculum will begin again next week, 3rd grade Ancient Egypt, 4th grade will explore the poetry and history of the Harlem Renaissance, and 5th grade will be completing our autobiography unit and moving forward with Capstone plans, but this week, let's take a breath and have some fun critical thinking activities that everyone in the house can do.  

Several PA teachers have been in touch, discussing how we can promote inferential thinking, creativity, family communication, and most importantly some fun into this first week of  this process.  The link below is to a site with a range of unfinished comics.  There are blank templates you can print, or just use any paper you have around the house.  The comics are all started, as you scroll down, so I'd like the students, and you too, to complete them.  Share what each member of the family made and talk about it.  There is a lot going on in the world, this week of learning should focus on bringing families together.  Have fun!
