Update From Room 209 September 19, 2012

Periodically there is information that I need to pass along that comes up between newsletters. This is one of those times!

On the Calendar:

Form and Function Collections
due this Friday, 9/21

Projects will be displayed and students will tour the mini-museum noticing the great variety of variations and responding to form and function prompts.

Swimming at the Blaisdell YMCA
Tuesday, 9/25 - Friday, 9/28
10:10 - 11:45
Permission slips were sent home earlier this week. A copy is available on the classroom webpage.

MAP Testing
Tuesday, 9/25 Reading
Wednesday, 9/26 Math 7:45 - 8:45
The MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) test is an online assessment that is given district-wide. The test questions are continuously adapting, moving the difficulty up or down based on the student’s responses. The intent is that the results will reflect the instructional level of each student and measure growth over time. Third graders took the MAP twice last year (fall
and spring). Fourth graders took the MAP only in the fall.

Cancelled Field Trip
Patty and I had planned a fall field trip to River Bend Nature Center in
Faribault for Thursday, 9/20, however, we were shocked at the
transportation cost, and decided to cancel this trip.
