MAP/Inview Test Results
A lot of important information will be coming home in your child's red folder today, so please check that!
You will be getting your child's fall MAP results and 2nd grade Inview results.
Another important paper you will receive is the Dangerous Activity Consent form for Adventure Education. Please sign and return this form, as your child will not be able to participate without it.
Genius hour Volunteers
When we begin researching, we will be looking for parent volunteers. I will most likely send out that information next week.

Scholastic Book Orders
Your orders have contributed to many new books being added to our classroom library! :) We were even able to raffle off 2 of the books last week as a behavior incentive. THANK YOU!!
Don't forget- No School on Friday, October 20th!
Students reading a Newsela article about students creating prosthetic arms for others- we could definitely make some connections between this text and what we learned from Aaron Westbrook!
We've been collecting mL of water everyday and charting our total Liters. Through this we've been able to discuss volume, fractions, estimation, and so much more!
6th Grade Reading Buddies!
On Tuesday we visited the Intermediate Building to read with Mrs. Frederick's 6th grade students! They were great leaders and we did an awesome job introducing ourselves- morning meeting is really paying off! :)
We created cube trains this week to look at multiples. We were able to notice common multiples, the commutative property, and discuss multiplication strategies.
Lava Lamp Science!
Look at the excitement on Maddy's face as she had a front row seat to see what happened when we combined water, oil, food coloring and alka-seltzer tablets!
Scientists at Work
Connor & Dempsey work together to add oil to our mixture. Dempsey's hand sure got tired holding that funnel!
