    Today we watched a SUPER COOL video about stamina and concentration. You could also use this video as a great way to talk about the metaphor of the feather (you'll know after you watch the video what I mean). The feather is what everything builds from and it can represent the importance of doing well in school as a young person and how life's experiences build off of it.
    I highly recommend you watch. Here is the link:

    We are studying the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in our fiction book. We are also discussing wormholes, multi-universe theory and how vacuums are created in physics. This is an incredible video that shows how the influence of gravity in a vacuum works. Watch and discuss. I hope you like it. You may need to copy and paste as the link may not work. :)

    We have been studying how Newton's Laws affect our lives. We have been studying inertia and Newton's First Law. We are using the concepts of seat belt wearing and the law. Please take the time to watch this video and discuss with your kids.

    There is no doubt that teaching our children about how to act and react in our world is essential. I hope that each month you take a moment to click on our videos, talk to your child and find out what Montclair is doing to help educate all of our students about how to live a better and happier life.
    In November our Character Education Trait is Gratitude. We will be watching the following videos and discussing how we can be more grateful each and everyday.

    Come and support our Montclair family member and her new book signing!
    Here is all the information you will need:
    Hi Teachers!
    I think most of you know me, but I’m Dominic and Lillian Jordan’s Mom. A few of you know about my book series for tween aged kids and a few of you have even been to see me skate, but I’m writing to ask if you’ll let parents know about our book signing at Tattered Cover this Saturday. My co-creator Alece also lives in the neighborhood in the convents across from the Molkery. Second grade might be a little young, but strong readers could definitely do it. Also, of course, my dream is you’d all buy class copies J, but let me know if I can donate a book to your libraries! The book is a kid empowerment series that uses roller derby as a backdrop. While some girl focus, the boys who have read it really like it as well. And, we’ll have cookies.
    Also, if any of you would be interested, I thought it could be fun to do an event for all the age-appropriate classes in the gym about the book, roller derby and more about the writing process. I can wear my skates and maybe even get some other skaters to come. If you’d be up for it, I’ll talk to those in charge of enrichment.
    If you are dying to learn more, here are a few recent articles and reviews:
