What to look forward to in January
January is dedicated to fulfilling more student goals. This month students will have the opportunity to take part in this student based curriculum. Student goals that we will help students work towards will include learning how to... make key lime pie, chocolate chip cookies, eggless donuts, and ice cream cake. They will participate in a Math Bee, to help achieve a goal of, “to get better at math.” Students will also participate in a week of science experiments with and artful theme. This week will include student goals of learning how to erupt a volcano, make silly putty, and more about the Earth’s atmosphere. On Thursdays, we will begin a new set of clubs. Club choices will consist of Creative Handwork, Ball Games, Lovable Lunch, and Art and Technology. During Creative Handwork Club, students will work on a different hands on project each week. Students will bring home handmade creatively created items! During Ball Games Club, students will play a different ball game each week in the multipurpose room. The possibilities are endless! During Lovable Lunch Club, students will learn how to make “kid friendly” lunch items that your child will be able to make at home. Finally, during Art and Technology Club, students will use technology such as Ipads, computers, light tables and more to create one of a kind art projects!
There are still spots available for Friday Ice Skating at Larz Anderson (Friday 1/6i is full). 4/7 students are so lucky to have this opportunity to join other extended days in Brookline! If your child is interested or you have questions regarding this special opportunity, please come see a 4/7 teacher!
