Thank you for a fantastic Bridges Tour this week. We learned so much about bridges and had a wonderful time walking all over. I couldn't have done it without your support and all of the volunteers that came along on the walk. Thank you!
We continue to watch our Praying Mantis. Hopefully they will hatch before the end of the school year!
As an art connection to our IB unit on bridges, students made prints of different bridges. They are all hanging up in the classroom, but should come home soon. Students learned about the different between an original and a print. First they created an original, which was copied, and then students made a print. This is an important art concept - the different between an original and a print!
Students finished their timelines of Portland History. They are all scrolls that are rolled around a pencil. Some students have some finishing touches to do at home! Students learned about the history of our city from before it was Portland through the present!
Thank you for coming to Global Experience night. We enjoyed sharing our musical instruments with you! It was a wonderful night and students were excited to have you attend! In preparation for the night we also learned about Guatemala, made Guatemala flags and watched the video Living On One Dollar.
Students also learned more about micro-finance and I helped students make three loans through Kiva.org. Ask your child about who we lent money to and what they are going to be doing with the money! (It was my money that was lent FYI).
Have a wonderful 3 day weekend!
