We’ve started our week out with Book Buddies and Biology/Botany. The students have “buddies” across grade levels, and each Tuesday, we either do a Peace Lesson together or read to each other. Your child will be reading with anyone from a kindergartner to a middle school student. We all choose picture books that satisfy every level of reading ability. The kids love meeting with other students, and our grade is one of the “oldest/top” grades, so they are responsible for taking care of younger students. We also started our biology for the week: Sixth years are working on systems of the body, including dental/digestive. Fourth, years are working on the classification of the animal kingdom.
