Week in Review

Last week we practiced reading and spelling words with -ill and -ing.  We also worked on adding and subtracting on a number line. Montessori jobs introduced were the 3D shape sort and Red Rod pattern cards.  Students began dictating their stories for our Young Authors writing project. On Friday students made a galaxy design using chalk pastels, painted rocket ships and drew a chameleon.

U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy has issued an advisory about social media’s impact on youth mental health. Children and adolescents on social media are commonly exposed to extreme, inappropriate, and harmful content and frequent social media use can contribute to poor mental health, including depression and anxiety.
