4C Families and Friends,
Once again this week, we donned our geologist caps and continued our inquiry into How the World Works. We investigated the concept of change by simulating rocks wearing down over time – with sugar cubes!
Shakin’ it up to model erosion (please turn down your volume) 😉
On Thursday we asked the question, “Why do beaches have sand?” Please be sure to ask your young scientist about this – we found out some fascinating reasons behind our many sandy beaches around the world.
We also paid a visit our buddies to share some fantastic books together:
Math Games: 24
We asked your scholars whether they had a chance to play 24 and many kids had not. Please take a few minutes this weekend to tackle these puzzlers with your mathematician! Here are 9 different cards for you to try. Zoom in on the photo to choose which card to ponder.
If you’re really keen, see if you can land on solutions to all the cards!

Conferences Monday – No School
We look forward to seeing you at 3-Way Conferences on Monday. Please be punctual as we have only 15 minutes and it will fly by quickly! Remember that the purpose of conferences is a quick snapshot of your child’s progress, a chance to reflect together over a couple work samples, and to land on a goal that your child can strive for. Please let me know if you’d like a more in-depth meeting outside of conference time and I’d be most happy to sit down at your convenience.
If you haven’t yet signed up for a time via the email link, please do so today.
Darren and Team
