October 28 - November 1
Red Ribbon Week
The Week in Review
Early in the week we watched isopods (rollie pollies) and darkling beetles in our self-made habitats as we learned about environmental preferences.
We can't forget our terrariums though! Some of our groups are growing jungles of plants! Over the last week our learners made two official observations in their science journal where they illustrated, described, measured, and examined their terrariums with their group.
On Friday, we made the water cycle in a ziploc bag, and on Monday we will be observing what happened to these bags over the weekend in relation to the water cycle.

**Notes From Our Room Mom**
Reminder to please complete the bottom portion for your contact information of the room mom letter. Please return to my attention/5E and Mr. Harvey will see that it gets to me. You can access the letter under the For Parents section of Mr. Harvey’s webpage for opportunities to volunteer for lunch/recess duty and the background check link if you have not completed it.
We have a Shutterfly page now for 5E. Please feel free to add your own pictures of our students from Austin student related activities.
Student directories are still available if you order online at the PTO webstore for $6 and they will be delivered to the classroom. Austin PTO webstore.
