It is a brand new year and the Middle Kids are off and running! We have spent these first couple of weeks getting to know each other and getting back into the routine of school. Some of our students are returning for their second year of Middle Kids while others are joining us from Younger Kids and are tackling all new expectations and procedures. We are gradually adding academic work sessions back into our schedule. They have already had several math work sessions and are cruising! They are learning to choose the “just right book” in Readers’s Workshop. Next week we will start working in spelling books. We are also spending quite a bit of time on our first topic unit of the year – Ancient Egypt. Who doesn’t love talking about pyramids and mummies?
We want to welcome our new Middle Kids teacher Christin Gallagher!
