This week, we’ve been wrapping up several year-end projects, and I’m so proud of the progress that each student has made this year! We’ve begun a new project where students (rather, teachers) create their own classrooms, complete with a learning game, a discipline/rewards system, incentives program, writing assignments, bulletin boards and more. Ask your child what kind of class s/he will lead!
Students completed the necessary boot camp needed to pass 4th grade math! We’ve completed our final year-end assessments and are in the midst of finishing up our Amateur Architect project using our measurement skills. We have some fun math activities to ride out the rest of the year, but the hard part is over!
Students will be finishing up their life as a miner in the Gold Rush Game. The stakes are high! Scandal is everywhere! So far, each team has kept a firm grip on their claim, but gambling fever is spreading through camp and will make or break these teams. But as we know, crazy things happen in Boomtowns with only the Miners’ Laws keeping track of good and evil. Ask your child what consequences s/he’s faced in the adversity of the gold fields.
Our class finished creating a brochure on a gold mining town—ask your child about his/her fictional city!
