This past week we were challenged to design and build a shelter using only earth materials that could withstand weathering and erosion on STEM Showcase Day. Be sure to ask us what worked and what needed improving. We also had a special guest speaker, Paul Revere. This next week we will have our second guest speaker, Susan B. Anthony. As the end of the 9 weeks comes to a close, we will be doing final assessments so I will not be introducing any new concepts with the exception of the new Spelling sort. Our second class auction will be on Monday, December 19th so your child may bring in an item/items from home that they would like to donate for the auction. Remember that you do not need to buy these items - they can be gently used items that your child no longer uses.
