Week of 3/2 - PURIM!!!

The merriment begins. This week we prepare for the puppet shows you will present to the Lower School students. Each block will present to one of the grade levels. I don't yet know which Block will be assigned to which grade. We have a lot of ground to cover in a short amount of time, but I am confident that you will all do a fantastic job making puppets, learning to manipulate them, and learning about how to help the "Wee People" at the Lower School make their own puppets. Everyone will have a puppet to take home with them. The proverbial icing on the cake is that you will be taught by a master puppeteer - Marilyn Price. I am looking forward to a fabulous week of fun and learning.

We will decide together how to approach the Unit 10 words and roots in terms of assessment. We have some choices here, and I want to permit flexibility. Many of you received A Wrinkle in Time on Friday morning.  If you did not, please come get it from me before school begins on Monday morning. Alternatively, you may access an online PDF of the book by clicking on the title under "Important Links." The pacing chart is also available in the links list.

Have a great weekend; see you on Monday!
