We missed our fifth graders this week, but we know they are having so much fun in Jekyll! Kids, please take good care of Ms. Boucher and Mrs. Goldstein, who must be enjoying spending some quality time at the beach with you.
Fourth graders concentrated on our projects. Some students did their final presentations in their classes, while others did "dry runs" and will present in costume next week. We cannot wait to see the exciting projects you have been creating!
Fourth graders also participated in a simulation about trade and the economic system of the Middle Ages. We learned about bartering and trade routes and the surprises and hazards of trading. Our day ended with a video about "The Merchant in the Middle Ages."
Fifth graders will participate in a Medieval Fair by presenting their projects to the entire fifth grade class on Thursday, Dec. 8. The cafeteria will be available for you to drop off your tri-fold boards from 7:15, so bring them there when you get to school on Fair Day.
Homework: Be sure to bring your project and costume!
