Room 7 News
October 17, 2016
Hats off to Room 7 for donating $30.00 to this month's community service project. I know the children felt proud to give to such a great cause!
Class Read Aloud:
We are almost finished with our first read aloud, Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary. Read aloud time in Room 7 has become my personal favorite. The children are so engaged as they listen to each adventure and mishap little Ramona has every day in her kindergarten class. This story has been a springboard for in depth conversations about characters, setting, and plot. Our read aloud time has also reinforced the value of loving a great book!
STREAM Lab Update:
Last week, the students had additional time in the STREAM Lab with a week of project based learning. The children created and used models to record and interpret information about geographic features. They observed their surroundings and recorded them onto maps through collaboration and gathering of information. Students asked questions to analyze maps and find patterns. The culminating project is a beautiful topographic map of mountains.
I'm sure by now you've heard that the children have been chewing gum as tool to help them increase their focus in the afternoon. Any donations of sugar free gum would be greatly appreciated. The kids have chewed up our current supply!
Paperwork was sent home on Friday from the PTO with all the information about how to make a donation. It's not to late to make a contribution to the PTO!
Thank you for your support!
