Welcome Back!
I feel like we had a really long break! I hope it was a restful time for everyone. We have two more weeks until To Market, To Market comes to a close. This week we will revisit our hopes and dreams for the year and check in with our classroom rules. We will begin the process of learning to knit with needles. First we have to make them.
 
Conferences
We have a release day on Monday, January 24th. I will have conferences during the day and at night. I will send home a sign-up next Monday. If the scheduled times don’t work in your schedule, let me know and we can work something out.

Knitting
Do you know how to knit? Would you like to help us get started? I don’t know yet when we will be knitting but we will certainly need helpJ Let me know if you are interested.
 
 
 
 
Demonstration Project
Attached to the homework this week are the directions for the at home project. Your child will get a chance to teach the class something they are good at or are very interested in learning to do. The steps for the project are clearly laid out.
When we come back from break students will be presenting their demonstration projects to the class. This project is meant to highlight something your child already knows how to do or make, not an elaborate, in depth research project on a new subject. Parents are there to support their child and allow their work to be “kid made.”
 
We did not have much time to talk about the project before break and quite honestly, we just started working my son’s project over the weekend. The homework this week and next will mainly be to work on and complete the project.
 
A student asked how long their project should be. My answer is anywhere from a few minutes to ten minutes at the most. If your child is interested in a broad subject, pick a something specific to tell about.
 
Projects are due next Wednesday, January 12th. We will have a demonstration fair on Friday, January 14th from 7:45-8:30. Come check out all the cool projects.
