Room 21 Families,
Hello! Long time no talk. I apologize for the delay in the blog posts. The afterschool Robotics Club I help run has begun and it is on Thurs/Fri. It has caused me to get behind on updates.
In Math, we are getting reading to review for our Module 2 End of Module Test. This module was so short (only 5 lessons), so we did not have any Mid-Module Test. This module has been on the Metric System.
In Writing, we have been wrapping up our Magic Rug writing. Students were to decide three places that a "magic rug" would take them to, then they had to describe what they did there. This is a part of our Narrative Writing unit.
We have been very busy in the Makerspace this year. Students have been working on programming Dash Robots to be tour guides for their CA region. Students have been working in small groups. They have been practicing giving jobs, communicating, and learning from one another.
We had our first Art Vista and Project Cornerstone this week. The kids loved them! Thank you to all the parents that volunteered their time to help us learn something new.
Just another short reminder for you to talk to your students about following directions and instructions in class. Many students are doing a fabulous job of this- thank you! We are still having some issues with chattiness and attitude overall throughout the classroom. This includes attitudes with both adults on campus, as well as students. Having a positive, happy attitude will always be more helpful than a negative, disrespectful attitude. Students are now sitting in pairs, and I hope we will be moving back into groups shortly!
Looking over our Haunted House book reports, they look awesome! I cannot wait to hang them up in the class. Halloween is coming up shortly. We will be having a Halloween Parade after lunch, at around 1:15. Parents are welcome to come and watch the parade. After, we will be having a party. More details are to follow. If you prefer your student does not participate in these activities, please let me know. Alternative activities will be going on in the Makerspace.
Have a great weekend!
