Nester's Rockin' Band Class
What's happening in Room 22?
Boosterthon - Rocki' Town Live!
The Boosterthon Fun Run kicked off this week with a fun Pep Rally and I am super excited about this year’s program. Our team name is Nester's Rockin’ Band! The Boosterthon Fun Run program involves all students in a fun, team building, fitness event while helping our school raise much-needed funds. The central focus of this year’s character program is COMMUNITY. This year’s character theme is ROCK’N TOWN LIVE, and the Boosterthon Team will take students on a fun-filled journey teaching them the importance of building community with this fun, music festival theme.
My goal for our class is to raise $50 per lap.
Come watch your students run their 30 - 35 laps Friday, Jan 23rd from 10:15 - 11:15 outside, weather permitting, behind the gym.
PBIS Party for End of 2nd 9 Weeks
PJ’s and Popcorn
Congratulations! Many in our class have earned four or less conduct marks for the 2nd 9 weeks! I will be sending a note home on Tuesday for those that are able to participate.
If your name is on the list… you should be proud of yourself just as much as we are of you!! To celebrate this great accomplishment you are invited to wear pj’s to school and bring a blanket, Wednesday, January 21, 2015. You are also invited to a movie and popcorn celebration at the end of the day (bring your water bottle).
In reading we've been working 8 new sight words each week, that correspond to the ones that were sent home in last week's homework. We've also been working on compound words and soon will be focusing on contractions.
In addition, we've been talking about nonfiction books and why we read nonfiction. This week students will be able to select a topic to focus on during their reading time in the area of nonfiction and really dive into it. "Reading Clubs" if you will. It's sure to be enlightening to see what they choose as their topics.
