Happy Monday Younger Kid Families!
Our young adventurers have learned about the Louisiana Purchase. They have followed the incredible journey of Lewis and Clark’s expedition. They have packed up their wagons and headed West for a better life for them and their families. The Younger Kids have learned so much about Westward Expansion, and had fun while doing it!
But it is that time again, time for our students to shift their brains, stretch their thinking muscles, and pivot into our new topic.
From American History to everyday science, we begin our dig into Weather. Students will start by noticing the weather everyday and keep track on our weekly storms and sunshine, with a daily weather check in. At the end of the week they will practice their nonfiction writing to create a summary of the week’s weather and their observations.
This is also going to be the last Friday of the month, so that makes it our sharing Friday. For Sharing this week, please have your child bring in an item that reminds them of their favorite kind of weather. If they love sunny summer weather they could bring in swim goggles, or flip flops. If they are a snow bunny, maybe they could bring mittens, or their hot chocolate mug. Have your student think about what their favorite weather is and why that item reminds them of it.
Some exciting events are coming up soon for our Rivendell Younger Kids. On Wednesday, March 4th, they will be performing their musical for the other students in the school at 2:00 PM. Then the final performance for parents will be on Friday, March 6th, at 12:00. The following week is the Rivendell Science Share night on March 12th. This is a fun night that allows students to engage in hands on experiments and dive deeper into some of the Science concepts that excite them. Then the week of March 16th to 20th is Spring Break!
Have a great week and as always thank you for sharing your children with us!
