Pratt's Primary Corner

Weekly Update- February 1, 2019

Week at a Glance

Despite the snow/cold and our shortened week, we had some amazing learning opportunities.


Math- We began investigating different mystery strips to try and determine the length based on the size of the strip deemed "one whole." This took problem solving, critical thinking, and perseverance. We will continue this activity next week.


Computer Science/Science- We used Scratch to program a light to blink using an Arduino board. I was amazed at student thinking and the different programs students came up with.

Important- Medical Leave Update

Just a few important tidbits before I'm out for 3 weeks.


  • While I am out, please direct all transportation changes to the office.


  • I am checking on getting contact information ti you for my long-term substitute. I will also leave information on my "out of office" message so you're aware who to contact if you need anything.


  • Report cards are set to go home the day I return to school, therefore, I will be holding those until conferences that week.

Because I will be returning to school the week of conferences, I'd like to go ahead and get the schedule set up.

Keep in mind that spring conferences are not required. If you have no concerns at this time, there is no need to meet. However, I am happy to meet with whoever would like to sign up. :)

Genius Hour Presentations

We will have Genius Hour presentations on Wednesday February 6th. Parents will be welcome to attend from 3:15-4:30 PM.


We will be sending permission slips for students to stay after school that day.
