Naturalist Thursdays: Starting next Thursday, February 3, we'll be spending a chunk of time every Thursday outside observing, studying, reading, and writing about the natural world around our school. Remember to dress for the weather (hats, boots, gloves, etc.). In late February, SPARK artist Alison Reintjes will join our Naturalist work for 6 visual art sessions, also outside.
Book Logs: Thank you for your help building a reading habit at home. The book logs help build awareness of reading habits and signal the importance of reading in our daily lives. It is vital that students read everyday at home, in addition to the reading they do at school. A child that reads 30 minutes everyday will see nearly 2 million words in just one year! If you're struggling to establish an at-home reading practice with your child, please let me know so I can help.
