***We will begin a t-Cap review after Spring Break. We will review red and
yellow skills from our last Think Link Test.
I also have a research project planned. I would like for the students to
each pick a culture to research. I would like to know what are the customs,
clothing, and food of these people. What type of sports and music do they
like? What have they contributed to our culture? It's a small
world......let's see what we have in common. Your child may do a show and
tell if they have items from that culture. They may also bring food from
that culture. You may create a poster to showcase your place in the world.
ALso include an essay about the place. The essay should cover all the
questions mentioned.A list of resources used should be written down and that
sheet stapled to the essay. We will have a "It's a Small World" day in the
classroom where parents will be invited to come on a journey with us around
our world.Each child will set up at their desk and parents may come in and
tour our "mini museums" as the children are the tour guides. I am so excited
about this!! I think it will be a great learning experience!! This will be
our end of the nine weeks project. I am still planning the day and will let
you know as soon as possible when it will be.
