Joyful Learning was in the air on Wednesday as our 2nd graders enlightened many Living Museum patrons with their knowledge of People Who Made A Difference in our World! I am so proud of all their hard work and teamwork! Thank you for costuming your child and your support, too!

Our Living Museum was the main attraction this week, but we also enjoyed a visit from Frau Barbara, a friend of Ms. Dorothy (Scarlet's grandma), who taught us some German words and answered our inquisitive questions about Germany and its culture.
In Math, we are wrapping up our triple digit subtraction with and without regrouping work in Math and began our unit on Money. Look for Volume 1 Math workbooks trickling home in the next few days.
