Hello room 8 families!

I hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing break! :)

Updates & Reminders:
Our book report for this month is the Wonders of the World research project. This will be an in class and out of class project. Click here to read the information sheet... Today our students picked a wonder in the world! The project includes a research paper, a 3-D representation and an informal presentation to other students at Barton, families and staff! This open house exhibition will take place on Friday, February 5th from 10:30-11:30 in the commons. Matt's class and room 8 will come together to share and inform others about our wonderings of the world!

This week we are also starting an Author Study on Gary Paulson (a local, Minneapolis born author). Yesterday students read more about Gary's personal life and experiences - and reflected on how that will impact his stories. Students will be in smaller groups reading different novels of his, such as The River, Brian's Return, Hatchet, Mr. Tucket, The Haymeadow, Canyons and The Crossing.

***Field trip to see Ballet Hispanico with the Uppers will be next Wednesday, January 13 from 9:45-11:45. Click here for the permission slip... Please return as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support. Have a great weekend!
