|Cradles to Crayons Pajama Drive|
Our annual PJ, Socks, and Underwear drive, held by the LE Elders, is on. As you may know, Cradles to Crayons is an organization that helps kids get the resources they need to have fun at school, at home, and at play. Right now, we are collecting PJs, underwear, and socks. Remember, anything you want to donate has to be new. To celebrate our drive, there will be a Pajama day for your children on March 13th, the last day of the drive and the day before break. Thanks to those of you who have donate already.
During the first part of the year, the First Years explore Physical Geography and classify land and water forms. They use materials that they can manipulate to represent geographic forms and to learn vocabulary associated with them. The aim of these lessons is to provide an impressioninstic demostration of the relationship between land and water. We offer the land and water contrast as the priciple distintion in most maps, especially globes. We aim to provide a physical model that links the symbolic representation of maps and globes to actual land forms.
|Inspiration for a bunch of "monkees"|
Inspired by an accurate tee-shirt and a classic song, LE3 embraced our dreamy side with a special assembly performance of the Monkees' Daydream Believer today. Check it out in our photos and videos sections!
|Where does pizza come from?|
We've been talking a lot about systems and interdependence this year. Farmer Ben gave an inspiring lesson on where we get our pizza. We started at the farmed products and followed them on their journeys to us, as pizza consumers. The process was observed and analyzed and a discussion followed on how we might make the system more efficient and environmentally friendly.
