Room 304 Update
May 15, 2016
Grade4Cares Service Project
This Wednesday is the first can-and-bottle drop-off, and to be honest, I'm not sure what to expect! I've tried to prepare the students that this first week will involve some trial-and-error as we see how all the components of the drive work together. Thanks to all the parents who have volunteered; I am still looking for someone to assist on Wednesday morning during arrival--let me know if you can spare the time!
Finally, this week we will start to engage in some math problem solving around the topic. I want to honor the students' curiosity and engagement with the topic of cancer, but also want to be very respectful of the fact that this topic hits close to home for many, and can be a sad conversation sometimes. I will be guiding the conversation, and keeping it age-appropriate, but if you think your child may be especially sensitive to a conversation about cancer, please don't hesitate to let me know.
