Class visits this week will focus on the following topics: DK will finish voting on nominees for the California Young Reader Medal, while grades K, 1, and 2 will continue to hear the nominees read aloud. Grade 3 will hear poetry, to support the upcoming poetry play on February 18. Grade 4 will be hearing about inventors--Benjamin Franklin and others--because January 17 is the anniversary of Franklin's birth as well as Kid Inventors Day. Grade 5 will hear one of the Caldecott Honor Books, to augment their study of slavery in American history.
Wednesday, Ms. Barbara will attend a meeting of the board of the Manhattan Beach Unified School District to accept a gift of $600 from the Manhattan Beach Historical Society for the purchase of history books for our library. This generous gift will be used to purchase biographies and other titles supporting our history curricula.
At lunchtime, students who wish to help will work on organizing and stapling the Scholastic Book Order flyers, which will be distributed next week.
