I had so much fun this week teaching the kids some background information about Animal Farm, allegory, The Russian Revolution, and the three economic and political systems: Communism, Socialism and Capitalism. Because so much of this information was new to them, they were so engaged, offering a unique perspective and making TONS of connections. Ask your child about the simulation we did today using Starburst candy!
Animal Farm books will be distributed Monday, and reading homework will begin that night. Please make sure to ask your child if they have completed their nightly reading homework and questions and engage them in discussions about the book.
Thanks to all who came to Demo night last night! It was great seeing you and watching you and the students have meaningful conversations about what they have been learning. :)
