What a busy time it has been in Room 21! This week was especially chaotic as I caught the flu over the weekend and was out on Monday and Tuesday. On Tuesday, the kids had 6 different teachers covering the class. The kids handled it very well! I was happy to hear they were mostly cooperative and helpful to the sub!
On Thursday, we had a wonderful opportunity to go on a virtual field trip to the Kelp Forest. Ranger Daniel took us on an adventure in his canoe to show us kelp, jelly fish, otters and more! The kids also got to ask him questions. They had such a great time.
Friday, we wrapped up our Dash Robot Regions project in the Makerspace. Students had the opportunity to present their maps to their classmates. It was very cool to watch all their hard work pay off.
We started our next Mystery Science lesson which was on comparing thick lava to runny lava. To show this, we used flour and water for the thick lava and regular water for the runny lava. The kids had the best time exploring through this experiment.
On Saturday, the 21st, Oster is having their annual Harvest Festival at school from 5:00-7:00 pm. There will be a lot of food, fun, and candy! There will be a Haunted House, gift baskets being raffled off, and a photo booth. I hope you can stop by.
Conferences are right around the corner, and students were sent home conference sign up sheets in their Wednesday envelopes. If you haven't already, please fill it out and return it to school ASAP so I can begin making the schedule. Please let me know if you need a new form.
Next week is going to be Pink Week. Students are encouraged to dress in Pink in support of breast cancer survivors. Each day is a different pink themed spirit day. The schedule will be posted on the home page of this site.
Halloween is quickly approaching, and we will be having a party. I will be sending out a link via Remind to have parents sign up to bring in treats, help decorate beforehand, and to stay and help during the party. We have a few games planned, as well as watching A Charlie Brown Halloween. Once I have completed the sign up, I will add the link in [here].
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
