Our November newsletter will be going home this week in Thursday folders, but it’s available digitally now! 🙂
To continue our learning about natural structures, fifth grade Search students from BGE and LCES traveled to the Science Museum of VA to view an IMAX feature about volcanoes. Thank you so much to our amazing chaperones for joining us!
All Search students in grades 2-5 have logic puzzle packets available for when they finish activities early. These puzzles focus on deductive reasoning and increase in challenge by the level. Logic puzzles are a favorite for many students and they often ask to take their challenges home. Below I have shared the links for similar books with differentiated levels. Second grade students start on the Basic Level Challenges and advance to the next level once they are ready. (Parents, there are expert level challenges if you would like to get in on the action too!)

First grade Search begins by exploring patterns in literature. Patterns can take on many forms in literature, such as rhyming and structure. Levi, wrote his own story, inspired by his older brother, to include A-B patterns. Great work, Levi! 🙂
Fifth graders have been exploring natural structures and created Voki avatars to teach about the Continental Drift Theory, Alfred Wegener or Plate Tectonics. Check out a few of the masterpieces from Ms. Taylor’s homeroom class.
