The third- through sixth-graders' enchilada sale deadline is Friday. Proceeds will help fund an Otter Cove field trip for Mrs. Sotelo's class at the end of the year. Students will spend three days and two nights at the Kachemak Bay Learning Center studying oceanography and biology.
This week, the class begins robotics and will study Mars. Students will build, program and work together to complete tasks. For more information about the unit, visit www.firstlegoleague.org.
Students also are reading their chosen biography books and will work on a book cover, written report and puppet.
Mrs. McCabe's first- through third-graders are working with geometry-based manipulatives (solids with 3-D shapes). They also are completed student-generated surveys, interviewing each other about favorite colors or flavors of ice cream and charting the results. The exercise is the basis for algebra, which correlates with geometry, the slopes of 3-D shapes and future development of equations and formulas.
Parents of Montessori students are invited to participate in a series of Developing Capable Young People workshops, which will run from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays or Thursdays (choose one day each week) for 10 weeks starting Tuesday. Space is limited. The fee is $40, or $83 for college credit.
