News for the Week of October 12

Happenings in Room 22

We've had quite the busy and exciting week in Room 22. Here are just a few of the fun things we've been up to!

*Thank you to everyone who contributed and bidded on the Michigan and Michigan State baskets! We have $65 going towards our fifth grade end of the year activity! HOORAY!

*Students continued working on their mysteries this week and peer edited classmates stories using Google Docs. Students finished their mysteries on Friday and begin to co-write stories with classmates using Google Docs.

*Students took a test over chapter one in math on Tuesday. They did VERY well! Test results have been entered into the gradebook and are available on PowerSchool. I will pass back the tests to students tests on Monday (we have had some absences this week).

*This week, units on Native American regions in the United States and Heredity were begun.

Socktober Reminder

Students at North Road are helping AGS student Lily Kromer in collecting new socks, underwear, and pajamas for foster children (newborns to age 18). Please consider donating to this cause. Room 22 watched a Kid President video on Socktober (this video can be found on our main classroom page on Google Classroom) and are excited about the cause.

The collecting box is located outside the main office, and we will be having crazy sock day on October 23 to help support Socktober.
