Animal Research and Reports

Research Writing Timeline:

January 11-22nd Students will have time in class to research and take notes on the animal of their choice. They will also be working on writing their star sentences using the notes they have taken. Work will come home each evening, so that you are able to see their progress.


A presentation of your child’s choice needs to be created at home; using the information and writing they find in class.

Choices could include: poster, diorama, brochure, slide show, written report, dress-up/oral presentation or any other ways in which they choose to be creative. These are due January 29th.

Box Tops for Education

Wow! We already collected a few pages of Box Tops. We love a good Box Top Blizzard! Each and every student can earn a prize for turning in as many Box Tops as possible. Box Top forms are in the Rock STAR folders. All Box Tops are due by February 11...or sooner. Thank you for helping us reach our goal of Most Box Tops in School!!

Roaring Readers Program

Please join us in reading for 600 minutes to earn a free pass to Roaring Springs Waterpark. Students have already received their reading log, which are due back to school by the middle of March.
