The News from Room 209

Art Adventure field trip is re-scheduled for Tuesday, February 25 at 12:00. I will keep the money and send a new updated permission slip.

So what is going on in 209 (when we are there)?

Geography: small groups are becoming experts on types of landforms and preparing presentations for the rest of the class.

Math: Both grades have been working on multiplication and division concepts. We will continue this work throughout the rest of the school year, and will begin a study of graphing and data analysis next week.

Literacy: I am currently conducting individual reading assessment conferences. Your child’s reading level and progress will be an important part of his/her conference.

The class read the biography of Martin Luther King, Jr. while I was recovering from surgery. We have had several discussions about his life. Many questions about slavery and the Civil Rights movement have come up, so I have pulled out several “picture books” to share with them in the next couple of weeks.

Writing: Each student is writing about something he /she is passionate about. Can you guess your child’s topic? Something he/she does whenever there is a spare moment, a special skill or talent honed over time … The completed project will include a “published” draft and a piece of artwork.

I sent home the conference forms on Wednesday. There were some errors on the scheduling form, so I have attached the corrected and updated form. I apologize for the confusion. I will add more dates and times later.
