Room 22 Rock Stars

News for the Week of March 21

Happenings in Room 22

*We had a fantastic field trip to AGS to watch the Middle School production of "Little Mermaid Jr." and several Room 22 siblings involved in the performance! I suspect we'll have some Room 22 alumni involved in next year's production!

*Historical Fiction presentations concluded this week. Students did a great job and enjoyed using Prezi.

*Students continued drafting their informational magazine, and are writing about some very interesting topics. They range from the planets to the Berlin Wall. I'm very excited to see the finished products!

March is Reading Month

This week's March is Reading Month calendar will be coming home with students on Monday. Our class goal is for each student to read at least 80 minutes per week. If students would like to read more, that are very welcome to do so. Each week that we reach our goal, we will fill out a marshmallow and add it to the camping bulletin board outside the Media Center. Happy Reading!
