Room 8 News, 11/4/15

Hello room 8 families, 

-This week we have explored "force, motion and energy." We first studied motion in our class, on the playground and shared our ideas as a group. We also created our very own pendulums and tested how many cycles occurred in 15 seconds! Next step is to change the variables and compare how these changes affect our experiment. We are finishing up our Giver essays, continuing our word study-vocabulary lessons and switched seats this week! Today our table groups worked together to create a poster and a rap/song/quote to represent their table members.

A few reminders:

-Mosaic - Museum of specialists & art in culture night is Thursday, November 19th. Come and see what your middles students have been doing in specialists featuring education and art on the continent of Africa! East African food will be served! It will be held in the Barton Commons and gym. See attachment!

"The Giver" final draft essay is due this Friday, November 6th
"Flipbook" book report due next Friday, November 13th

*Save the date! Our classroom will host a Thanksgiving feast on Tuesday, November 24th during our lunch time/after recess. Next week students will have the opportunity to sign up to bring either an appetizer, main dish or dessert. Parents are invited to join our feast, help set up and serve! More info. to come in the next week.

I am also looking for volunteers to help label and level our class book closet for reading groups. Reading groups will start soon and we are looking for parents that would be interested in coming in on Tuesdays from 10:15-10:45 to help facilitate a reading group.
*Please email me your availability to come help with the feast, reading groups and leveling books.

Thank you for your support. Have a great night!
