Cannot wait to see everyone tonight! Everyone has worked so hard for this night! After the performance, we will have a brief presentation and time to enjoy the refreshments made by the children. Here are some links for some good articles on parenting that support our Montessori approach as well as resources for homework:

This week, the children have been constructing arguments for a persuasive essay about something they would like to change about the school. We have looked at the pros and cons of each issue and talked about constructing counter-arguments in order to form a solid persuasive position. Next week they will continue to refine their work and eventually we will post our work online to vote on it! If anyone is skilled in the area of web publishing, we would love your help and/or input with our project!
Also today, the students formed groups to choose a recipe to make in class on Wednesday, November 27. They will be deciding on the recipe on Friday and may start bringing in ingredients as early as Monday, November 26. Please encourage your child to choose a simple recipe that they could share with their group as a cooking possibility for next week. We have crockpots, breadmakers, cooktops and the use of the oven for part of the day. Parents are welcome to join us at noon on the big feast day.

I am proud to announce that students have an opportunity to learn to type at school and home via a website called typing web. Click here to find out more!
If anyone is interested in volunteering in the classroom, I am looking for someone willing to give private lessons to small groups of students for about 20 minutes per group, preferably in the afternoon or late morning.
To login to typing web, please use your first name and then mec for the username and 123456 for the password. For example, my username would be Lizamec and my password would be 123456.
Try it out with your child at home if you can. The accounts are connected to my email account and I am able to track everyone's progress in learning to type!

Tomorrow we will be watching a science related movie in the afternoon because the children worked hard in class for weeks to be able to earn a reward of their choosing. Students are allowed to bring pillows for the movie as well as their own personal stash of movie treats (aka junk food) or enough to share with the entire class if desired. They may not bring out the junk food ahead of the scheduled movie or they will lose the privilege. Please remember to sign up for conferences!

We are so pleased with the tremendous progress of each student, both socially, and academically.
We cannot wait for the opportunity for your child to show all the amazing work they have done this year!
