Social- Today we listened to my grandma, who I recorded on Youtube, tell stories from when she was younger while living on the farm. Your child’s job is to interview an older person (any adult really) about their growing up days. The interview questions are in their take home folder. This doesn’t have to be done tonight. It can be done any time in the next week or so! The students will be sharing their interview with the class. If you want to videotape the interview, and send it to me, we can show this in class too.  But no pressure. It’s not mandatory.
