We are in the middle of a really fun and interesting unit studying the formation of the Columbia River Gorge. Last week we built replicas of Glacial Lake Missoula and watched as our “ice dams” of frosting and marshmallows gave way to the ice cold jello water, changing the landscapes they had formed.
School is in full swing and we are in our routines. Students are in charge of their writing during Writer’s Workshop, reading “just right” books, and being challenged in math classes. I look forward to chatting with parents and students this week during conferences!
