Rebecca Till -- Room 216

Welcome to Room 216. I am glad you are here. I am excited to be part of a school that allows children to learn and grow in a supportive and nurturing environment. We encourage development of both knowledge and self confidence, and I will use a variety of teaching techniques that encourage learning in different ways.

Dear Parents,
The last week of school is here!! Here's what's happening this week:
Monday is Lake Day. A Google Doc has been sent out for volunteers. Let me know if you plan on walking over with us. We will be leaving Barton at approximately 9:15.
We will be having a picnic lunch.

Tuesday is our portfolio share from 7:30 to 8:30. We need about six more people to bring food. We will also have our plant sale pizza and ice cream on Tuesday. Each student can have two slices of pizza for lunch.
Please send a drink (which is not pop) and you can also send fruit or salad or whatever you'd like to supplement the pizza lunch. Ice cream will be served as a treat for the end of the day.

Wednesday is our trip to Como Zoo. I will confirm chaperones tomorrow. Students can bring a bag lunch or buy food at the zoo. Right now it looks like there might be storms on Wednesday, in which case the trip will be canceled. Rain is okay but lightning is not.We will probably have to wait to make that call on Wednesday morning. Keep your fingers crossed!

I hope to see you all on Tuesday! Thank you!!

First Assignment of the Year. Due Tuesday, September 6

Your writer's notebook is going to be your most important writing tool this year, and you'll be using it almost every day.  Often writers decorate their notebooks to make them uniquely theirs.  Because what's inside your notebook will be different from what's inside anyone else's, you'll want to make the outside of your notebook different than anyone else's as well.  You'll want to make it a writer's notebook that reflects who you are and what's important to you.

Your homework assignment is to collect materials you'd like to put on the cover of your writer's notebook so that it reflects who you are.  You might find special photos, quotes, words, or drawings.  Bring these to school on Tuesday and we'll save some time to decorate our notebooks.  This is a "no stress" assignment.  Be creative and have fun!
