Thursday Thought #6

We are beginning to pay attention to the messages we send ourselves, when we make a mistake, or something feels challenging and we just don't know it yet. Messages can be positive or negative. 

In class we will be working on paying attention to the messages we send ourselves and trying to reframe negative thoughts into more positive ones.

THANK YOU to the chaperones who were able to join us on our field trip today. Although mother nature didn't cooperate 100% the children were so well behaved, seemed to have fun and learn a few things.

Be sure to visit the Plimoth Plantation Website for support as you work through the Plimoth Project.

Plimoth Plantation Here We Come!

We have been busy learning about the Wampanoag tribe, the first people who lived in the southern part of Massachusetts.

The following video clips provide a glimpse of our Plimoth Plantation visit. Your child may enjoy watching them at home.

Thursday Thought #3

We are kicking off our Engineering by Design projects with what has become known as The Global Cardboard Challenge. Students have begun thinking of their own independent designs for games made out of cardboard and few other recycled materials. Tomorrow groups will meet together to collaborate, share ideas and work together to design the game they will create on Wednesday October 18. Check in with your child about what they might need. As a class we could use adult scissors(labeled with your name on it) and packing tape. 

Be sure to check out the videos about Caine's Arcade, the inspiration for the challenge.
