What a GREAT first week of school! The students enjoyed sharing their "Two About You" artifacts and making instant connections with new and old friends. We played the "Name Game" to help us remember each other's names.
We have two very helpful and inspiring college students from Da Vinci's First College Program, Da Vinci Extension helping our classes: Savannah and Samiy. They will be helping both Core 3 classes each week.
As authors, we are learning how to "Paint a Picture" with words by using our five senses to describe the most delicious food we've ever eaten in our lives. We will continue to stretch our writing to add more descriptive details and vivid verbs.
As mathematicians, we are applying numbers, operations, and equations to riddles and questions about ourselves as a fun way to get to know each other.
We will be reading and discussing what is the U.S. Constitution and writing a Core 3 class Constitution...ways we will agree to live and learn by in our class. I encourage you to create a Home Learning Constitution...ways you will agree to live and learn by in your home learning environment. This helps set the stage for agreed expectations, safety-both physical, social, emotional, and accountability.
I'm excited about all the learning we will explore this semester and year! It will be new learning for all of us. Please reach out to me by email with questions, concerns, celebrations, or to schedule a meeting.
It is an honor to be working with such a talented group of students, parents, and staff!
