Here we are in the final week before Spring Break! This time of year sure flies by. The Middle Kids did a fantastic job last Friday with their Science Share presentations! It is always so fun to see what they come up with. We all learned a lot! And so many of our kids entered their projects into the Science Fair – even kids who weren’t required to! The display boards look amazing. Thanks to you parents for supporting them and helping them to get these completed on time. We know this requires quite a bit of your help at their age, but each year you will find that they can do more and more on their own. Please be sure to set aside some time to walk through the Commons and learn something new!
We have started a new topic unit on Dinosaurs which will continue through mid April. We started last week with a discussion of what the kids already know about dinosaurs and what they hope to learn throughout this unit. Today we are spending some time learning about how dinosaurs are classified. During this unit, we will also learn about fossilization, the dinosaur timeline, herbivores vs. carnivores, and the different adaptations dinosaurs had. On the Friday after Spring Break the middle kids will be doing recitations about a chosen dinosaur so that we can learn about them in more detail. Of course, we will be sending home instructions for this recitation on Monday, March 19th.
We hope you all have a fantastic Spring Break next week. We all look forward to having this time. Whether your family is off on a plane to another part of the world or country, or just staying here in wonderful Colorado, we hope you enjoy every minute of it!
