We had a wonderful time downtown at the Symphony and are excited for next week's trip to Tempe Center for the Arts to see Rock the Presidents, which is a culmination of some of our studies about the presidents. We will leave around 8:40 and will be taking the lightrail to the venue. After the performance we will hike up A Mountain and eat lunch there. Please make sure your child has a water bottle, lunch, snack, and good walking shoes. A Mountain is right next to our lightrail stop, near ASU. We will return to school around 2:45. If you would like to join us, please let us know. We could use another driver to and from the lightrail station if you cannot stick around.
We are also having a kids vote on election day next week. We be continuing some discussions about the upcoming election and our electoral process. The children will have a ballot that will include some of the statewide races, so feel free to share with your children your rationale for choosing candidates and why you have voted for the particular people running in each race. We are excited about our activities and lessons planned for next week. Feel free to ask about your child's work this last week. With Halloween, we had a handful of students who still need to finish some work at home this weekend.
Our Candy Graphs will be printed out next week. After collecting and sharing data, we found that our students received between 0 and 609 pieces of Candy. Our median was 94 and our mode was 0. Everyone worked so hard crunching the numbers for their graph. Student's are welcome to create their own graph at home using the create-a-graph website at https://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/
