Students shared their sketches and materials lists with peers and I answered questions about the Dream Home Project. This is the only homework for most students this week. A few will need to also finish the Final Cost Estimate.
About half the students began learning about architectural styles in America from the Colonial Period to the early 1900s once they finished their homes. We will continue this next week.
Students spent the rest of our day working in their bridge companies. They reviewed the job requirements, completed training, and got busy! Order forms were filled out, checks were written, the Warehouse was open, land was purchased, and students were challenged to fulfill their specialized roles.
Two schedule changes to note:
1. Next week STRIDE will be on Thursday due to the new teacher workday on Wednesday.
2. We will have STRIDE on Wednesday, May 23rd. Normally this would be our last day. However, I have scheduled a makeup day for Wednesday, June 6th after EOG.
Thank you so much for all the sweet notes and gifts you've sent for Teacher Appreciation. I have been overwhelmed by your kindness and love!
