A Big Bite

Our first full week is done and everyone did a great job! We have continued with Reader's and Writer's Workshop, finished chapter 1 in Math (the test is Tuesday!) made a map of the world using paper puzzle pieces in Social Studies, and started learning about the Scientific Method in Science. We celebrated Constitution Day on Friday and began our celebration with a visualization activity and listened to the Preamble of the Constitution. Then the students participated in small groups to discuss the Bill of Rights. They had to whittle the first ten amendments down to 5. Overwhelmingly, the students chose to keep the 1st, 8th and 10th amendments, and chose to discard the 2nd and 5th amendments. Ask your child about this activity, and see if they can tell you about the first ten amendments to the constitution. Have a great weekend!
