What’s Happenin’

There is lots of good stuff happening in the 3-4 learning center world! Kids are writing all sorts of creative writing projects and worked on the Friday typing challenge to build typing fluency- ask your kid what they wrote about today! Students will be finishing up their persuasive writing next week and sending it off in a letter to someone or recording it with a filmed speech.

If you haven’t yet, please sign up for a conference on March 22nd or 23rd. Kids are preparing their portfolios of work and reflecting on their growth. Soon they will practice how they will lead a conference. This is a big moment for your kids and a special time together.
