Room 603 Update

A Class of Leaders // October 12, 2015

Last Week Review

What a Character!

Students did a WONDERFUL job on their character projects. Students had a chance to share their projects and tell a little bit about their story. This is going to be the end of our Character Analysis unit and it was a great way to wrap it up.

Think Win-Win!

We've been discussing the Leader in Me habit #4: Think Win-Win. Students are encouraged to creatively problem solve so that everyone can "win" with the outcome. We practiced this through a little game of Thumb War!


If you'd like to learn more about the 7 habits that we're discussing in class, here's a list discussing them.

Art Time!

Thank you to Hadley's mom for coming in on Friday to teach the kids their first official art lesson of the year. Their magical forests turned out great.


All students' artwork throughout the year will be collected and sent home in portfolios at the end of the year.

Announcements

Materials Needed!

Our STEM Friday project this week will be involving recycled materials that the students will use to create a prototype. The materials we need the most are cardboard and duct tape. Any other recyclable materials you may have laying around your house (milk cartons, plastic jars, old boxes, popsicle sticks, etc.) would be a great addition to the things we could use. If you are able to donate please send them with your child on Friday morning. Thank you!


Here is a more detailed explanation of the process we will be going through and more examples of materials we could use.

Book Fair

Our fall book fair is happening this week! Students can come in to buy books before school on Tuesday and Thursday, as well as Wednesday Night from 5-8pm. However, Students must be accompanied by an adult.

Assessments

All assessments that your child has been taking so far will be sent home this week. After then they will be sent home weekly as they are taken.
