recap of our week

What an eventful week! Our first field trip of the year to see Elephant and Piggie was today.  We had such a blast and laughed so much.  They’re showing it until late October.  I’m sure the students would love to go again.  I highly recommend it.  Ask them all about it this evening!
Also this week, students really enjoyed making puppets , creating a setting, and performing a legend for their peers.  Students had the choice of creating their own or retelling one of the Native PNW myths we’ve read so far this year.
I kept the field trip shirts and will wash them for all students and then keep them here at school. The reason behind keeping them at school –  I wouldn’t want a student to forget to wear theirs on a field trip day and feel left out not wearing one.
Next week we have conferences. I shared the schedule a couple days ago with you through an email.  Please contact me with any q’s or concerns.  I look forward to it!
