January 22, 2013

We have learned a lot about matter last week, we will be wrapping things up and starting our plant unit.

Representatives from Red Butte Garden have kindly given our classroom the equipment we need to implement a plant unit that they have put together. That means we will be able to grow a special plant that we plant as a seed and will be able to harvest the seeds before school gets out! Pretty cool. I am super excited.

Thank you for helping us out by calling the office when your child has been late or absent. I know the office staff have appreciated it greatly.

Please continue to dress your children for the cold weather. Even though things are warmer now than they have been, it is still cold outside and they need appropriate shoes and coats (not hoodies).

Our DIBELs testing went well. I have gathered up some materials to help some students have some extra practice at home (and at school) to work toward passing the end of year test. I will be sending those home next week. If your child doesn't come home with a folder that means that they have more than passed the end of year goals.

Thanks again for letting me teach your children. They bring a smile to my face each day!
