It was also wonderful to see the 7th graders sharing their work and their knowledge of their African countries at our geography fair for the 3rd through 6th grade on Friday. We are moving on to a new block – Physiology – this week but we’ll still have a few African presentations each day to enrich our learning as well. We’ll also begin reading our next class novel, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry on Monday.
Below is our weekly report from this week’s class reporter, Kaleah, followed by 7th grade news.
Kaleah’s Class Report
On Tuesday we learned about a guy named Nelson Mandela. He was a very important leader because he was basically the Martin Luther King of South Africa. In choir we learned a new song. I don’t know the name of it but it was a pretty cool song. Wednesday was awesome! We made a mud oven with Mr. Lazar. It was messy and awesome! He also talked in French and Yom. In handwork we read a script from a play that was pretty cool. On Thursday we listened to Cody’s and Rain’s reports on Uganda and Zambia. They were awesome. We also heard a Kenyan folktale about a lion, hyena, and hare. On Friday we had the third through sixth grade come up to look and learn about our countries during our African Geography fair. We also played sprout ball in games. And now it’s the weekend! See you later.
FIELD TRIP TUESDAY
We will go on our field trip to the Denver Art Museum (where we’ll have a guided tour of their African art exhibit and a self-guided tour of their Renaissance art) on Tuesday, so be sure to get your student to school on time that day. The students should bring their lunches and water bottles in a back pack, as well as a warm jacket as we will eat outside, weather permitting. Thank you to Jackie, Kimberly, Kristen, Kurt, Liz, Marci, and Sue for chaperoning.
Please to remember to send in nonperishable food for our 7th grade student council food drive to benefit the Food Bank of Larimer County. The student council will continue collecting food over the next couple weeks. They have proven themselves to be great service-leaders for our school!
