Lower Elementary - December 11, 2015

Dear RiverRun Families,

This week our Elders were working with the children from the Primary Class writing autobiographies, continuing the celebration of Tomie de Poala month as his books often recount his own experiences. The Upper elementary students provided guidance with this endeavor.

Next week the Upper Elementary will be working with our First Years writing autobiographies as the rest of the class works independently writing theirs. Taco Tuesday was a big hit! The children can’t wait for next month’s fiesta. Thank you to the RiverRun Community Student Counsel for bringing our community together in such a fun and tasty way.

The First Years were introduced this week to the adjective. This completes the Noun Family. They were also introduced to compound words. It is nice to watch the First Years begin to work independently, making choices of works to do and learning to manage their time. Our Second Years are using the Bead Frame to work on static and dynamic subtraction and the Elders are practicing word problems requiring their multiplication and division skills.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday for Parent-Child Afternoon . Check your child’s folder for a list of works they would like to show you.

Best Wishes,
Amy, Tatiana, and Rachel
