This Week in E2
Mrs. Rickman's Class
On Friday afternoon I set aside time to conference with each student to go over what they accomplished during the week and to help them get organized. Today I sent home individual FRIDAY FOLDERS, it's the 'special' one they chose for this year. I will help each student gather the work they have accomplished weekly and put it into that folder. Please look at your child's work and RETURN the folder with the work in it on Monday. Each child has a three-binder that they will put their work in throughout the year, we are building a portfolio of the entire year for you to keep in June. In this week's folder I will place a simple sheet for you to sign acknowledging you saw the work and a reminder to send it back to school.
My goal by the end of September or early October is to have weekly work plans for each student. They will get them on Monday and fill them out daily to record and reflect on their work. When these become part of our routine I will send them home with the Friday folder for you to sign.
I cannot state how thankful I am for having such amazing, generous, patient families this year. Your children are a reflection of the home they come from.
Observation vs. Inference
This weeks video shows the power of observation at the pond, when we returned to the classroom we made inferences about our observations and the environment.
Reminders From Mr. Duffek
We have a Montessori Parent Committee (similar to a PTO) that meets regularly throughout the year. Our first meeting will be on September 19th, at 3:30 PM in the school library. If you are interested in being part of this committee you are welcome to attend this meeting. Attached to this email you will find the agenda.

My plan is to have 4 students in the kitchen each month to help prepare the meal, too many kiddos in the kitchen just makes for a mess! Each child will have a chance to get in the kitchen to cook at some point durng the year, it will be on a rotating basis. Thank you again for all the donations, it's your generosity that will make this work!
TOY CARS - if you have any extra toy cars for a science experiment please send them in, I will return :)
