Room 26 Weekly Newsletter
February 16, 2016
I hope you thoroughly enjoyed the 4-day weekend!! I am excited for this week - we have so many wonderful learning opportunities planned!
Our owl pellet dissections are underway! Students have already examined, weighed, and measured their owl pellets, and have started carefully extracting bones from inside the pellet. It will be interesting to see what animal skeletons we can identify from the pellets! As a reminder, I purchased the owl pellets out of pocket at a total cost of $105. Thank you to those of you who have already donated to help defray my personal costs. If every student could donate $3 or $3.25 for their pellet, it would cover the amount I spent. I would really appreciate it!!
Semester 1 report cards will be sent home on Friday, February 19th.
Mark your calendars for next Wednesday, February 24 at 6:00pm in the cafeteria. LCM will be hosting a Social Media Awareness night for parents. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to learn about the ins, outs, and potential pitfalls of social media and our children. Childcare will be available.
We are continuing our novel study of The Cay. The students are working with vocabulary we will encounter while reading the novel, will be creating maps of the Caribbean, and are responding to the book in journals. We have been having fascinating discussions about the characters, events, and perspectives in the book.
