Weekly Update 11/18/11 by Max, Eddie, Mick, and Lucas

The Sigma kids are hungry!  Lucas, Max, Mick, Eddie and their brain food.  
They are storing energy for the tough questions ahead of them.
Gobble!  Gobble!  Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!

In drama we were mirroring each other's motions.  
One person starts and the other person follows, and then we switch being leaders.  
We were inspired by the "I Love Lucy" episode with guest star Harpo Marx.

In Chinese we practiced speaking through partner dialogues.  We practiced asking and telling basics like our names, where we live, how old we are, and what our phone numbers are.

 CiCi and Lucas got cool pop-up cards!

All of the money we raise will go toward our community projects.

In social studies we used different colored yarn to make a visual of the Fertile Crescent, Mesopotamia, and Sumer.   We then added labels for all of the important geographic features of the area.
