We went on a field trip to 826michigan, a creative writing workshop, and the downtown Ann Arbor District Library last week. Students had an opportunity to participate in solving a mystery and writing some persuasive letters. They also had the chance to explore the downtown Ann Arbor District Library and check out some books with their new library cards! Here are some pictures from our adventure:
With that, here are a couple of important announcements:
- Valentine's Day Party: Our 4th grade classroom will be having a Valentine's day party Friday afternoon before the end of the day! If your student is bringing in a Valentine, please bring one for every student. I will send home a class list. Feel free to bring in small treats to share!
