Hard to believe we are halfway through the first semester of school, but interims have started appearing for some of the kids. We’ll keep them working hard to improve in all areas but especially those where they need help the most. A few projects have cropped up so far too. VU has lots of resources for our kids to use for their posters, reports, and so on. It’s such great fun to watch a project come together and to guide students through the process so they not only learn the specific content but also the strategies and time management skills that can be used for any endeavor. We have lots of fourth graders learning Virginia history so I anticipate some related social studies fun!
