January to June

Below is the electronic version of the Big Chart, tracking our homeroom plans for the semester. The brightly colored whiteboard version is up in the classroom, right at the top of the stairs, as a helpful reminder to pick up the pace whenever the days get slow, not that they do. 

This plan includes five projects, three Exhibitions, six read-alouds, and sixteen other sundry items. 

Bear in mind that, with the exception of the very first row, none of the work in the kids' specials classes is included--that's Latin, Math, Science, Art, Music, and either French or Mandarin (we call it 'Frandarinch').
