Weekly News!

This week in Room 15 . . .

  • We learned a lot about snails!  We read about snails and watched them all week long.  Students made lots of interesting observations!  Mrs. Gannett visited us again and we looked at their structures, behaviors, and functions.        

  • In reader's workshop, we continued looking closely at characters.  Students revisited the theories they had made about the characters in their own reading and started practicing making good predictions based on what we have observed our characters saying or doing. 

  • In math, we are working on word problems and using different strategies to attack them.  We made math mountains, comparison boxes and practiced writing equations to help us get ready to solve for an unknown number.  

  • In writing, we chose our seed idea for our persuasive pieces.  Be ready to be convinced that your family needs a pet, our own room, trees shouldn't be cut down and that Friday Freeze shouldn't require tickets. 

  • We had another Junior Achievement session with Amy Barbarasch.  This week students learned about businesses and worked as a team to open a restaurant of their own. Students had to work collaboratively to make major decisions about food type, logo design and hiring.  I love seeing their excitement.  
  • March Life Skill focus:  Integrity.

Volunteer Sign Ups

 

Our school and classroom wouldn't be the same without the help of parents like you.  

 

Volunteers are required to fill out paperwork, take a quiz, and bring a copy of your driver's license to the office or district office.  Click here to access the requirements.  Many people are already "cleared" with the district.  Please contact the office or myself if you are unsure of your status.

 

I have only received one parent driver form and have 2 parents that said they can attend our trip as passengers.  WE will NOT be able to go on the Moraga History trip unless we have drivers to take around the 24 students in our class.  The trip is on Tuesday, April 25th.  An email went home Friday, March 17th with the driver form attached.  PLEASE HELP US!

 

Thank you for all the support you provide in and out of the classroom.
