Big News: F3 Radio Podcasts Are Coming!

F3 received GREAT news today! We have received funding for several audio recorders in order to produce our own podcasts. Read the proposal here.

Looks like we'll be able to start those podcasts up in mid-October. The students will be reporting about what they learn in school, read their poetry, record class projects... really... the sky is the limit!

Learning about 9/11 in F3

Today we started to learn about the events of September 11, 2001. There seemed to be a divide in the class between those who had seen video footage or had heard rumblings about the tragedy to those who had no knowledge of what happened that day.

Cor ten years I have struggled to have a good jumping off point to have a discussion with students about 9/11. Finally, this age-appropriate film, The Second Day, has provided just that.

We watched half of the film today.

Please take the time to talk to your child about the memories that you have from this day.
