News from the classroom
On Tuesday 6/6/2017, Mrs. Czarnota came into our social studies class and taught my class about the Roman Empire. Mrs.Czarnota presented artifacts and objects that Romans used in their everyday life from the Roman time period to us. Mrs.Czarnota arrived at our classroom dressed as a Roman wife. She showed us toys that children from the Roman time period would play with. Mrs.Czarnota also showed us a long sword and short sword that Roman soldiers would use in battle. She had different types of Roman armour that was used over time to show us. She also explained the timeline of the Roman history. Mrs.Czarnota brought lots of knowledge to the table. Mrs.Czarnota was very kind and had lots of experience. I think most of us could say we love and enjoy these lesson. The lesson was enjoyable yet knowledgeable.

Touching Spirit Bear Project
Once again, Bloomfield and Honeoye collaborated, and created a fun Touching Spirit Bear ELA project together. This year Honeoye visited Bloomfield first. We all got our topics and met our partners. Since we have so many people, we wanted to keep the projects interesting. So we got into groups of two or three, and all did different topics. There were 44 different topics on just one book!
Throughout the project, we communicated online through Google slides with our partner(s) to edit our presentation. After about two weeks of hard work, Bloomfield’s sixth graders went to Honeoye for some last minute touches and practice. We practiced presenting in front of our peers, and made small edits while we were there. Then later that night we had our open house in the Honeoye cafeteria. We presented in front of our friends, parents and parents of other kids.
