Our Classroom News Letter
What we are doing!
We are beginning to come up with ideas for the annual science fair. It will tentatively be towards the end of April. I will let you know more as the time nears.
This year our class will focus more on researching for their projects. They will work on gaining a deeper understanding of what makes things work and why.
Smarter Balance Testing
We are beginning to practice for the Smarter Balance test that will begin in a couple of weeks. We need to practice to help us understand the format, while using the Ipad. This will be our first year experiencing this new testing.
Bikes for Books
As you know we have begun to read for the annual bikes for books program again. This is for 2nd through 6th grade. I try to push each student to read many books throughout the year, but this encourages even more reading.
April 4th, 2nd through 6th grades will be going to Machias for a job fair. We have gone several times before and students enjoy seeing jobs being done and learning about different kinds of jobs available in our area.
