Thinking, Creating, Reflecting: Impacting the Future


Brainstormers’ and Creatovators’ Highlights! Feb. 1 – Feb. 5

Song for a Whale!

Song for a Whale has been a perfect read aloud during our Marine Mission investigation. Ask your child about Iris and her curiosity with Blue 55!

Genius Hour projects!

  • Leona shared her research about endangered species. Each animal was created from Lego bricks!
  • Sal gave us a tour of some fascinating Smithsonian Museums!
  • Parker shared his passion for tanks and how they have evolved through history!
  • Declan inspired us with his understanding of symbiotic animal partnerships!
  • DaLyla became an expert in Dragonology!
  • Lorien’s hard work on the story of Sadako and the 1,000 paper cranes!
  • EJ presented the class with a history lesson on the hard work behind making Thanksgiving a national holiday. We all agreed that Sarah Hale was a remarkable woman!
  • Livia taught us what she learned about Tinker Swiss Cottage!

Kinesthetic Movements!

Creat-ova-tors used kinesthetic movements to represent the three types of triangles and 4 types of quadrilaterals. Check to see if they remember! We also discussed and defended arguments about whether a square can be a rhombus, a rectangle, or a parallelogram and vice versa.

Peer Reviews!

Each student started planning, brainstorming and drafting the title, plot summary, and general information for their first book review during Writers’ Workshop!
