The Ririe Report
October 7, 2019
I am so proud of all the creative and wonderful projects that were completed by the students for our mythology unit. We had a fun time watching some of the readers theaters that were written and performed by some of the groups. The students in the second block even created a rubric which I will use to grade the projects.
Becoming Better Learners
After a slow start, the kids really got into working on their projects. Last week I asked the students to think about how they learn best, and we ended up having a really good discussion on the topic. I'm the type who just likes to listen and take notes, but I also love the opportunity to brainstorm with another person. I noticed that towards the end of our projects students became more focused and purposeful; I also loved that once they got into the classroom, they couldn't wait to start working on their piece.
Parent conferences are always one of my favorite events of the school year - no, really, I'm not kidding. Although I don't enjoy the long days, I love getting to visit with you. Over the years, I've met many wonderful parents, and I'm sure this year will be no exception.
I will do my best to accommodate your schedules and will start conferences on Monday ( Oct. 28th). I've just set up a schedule on Sign-up Genius and will be e-mailing my homeroom parents next week with that information so you can start signing up.
Mrs. Roach and I plan to meet with our respective homeroom parents unless there is a pressing reason for a conference with both teachers.
Also, please let me know if you would prefer a phone conference.
