Last week, we spent a lot of time working on reading and math goals for this trimester. I sat down with the students and we looked at how far they have come and what they hope to achieve during the trimester. Copies of the goals will be on the itslearning website by the end of the week and I will send a paper copy home soon too.

Our spelling words all end in -ed. Some of the students really struggled during the pretest today. Our focus with these words are the 3 different sounds -ed can make at the end of the word; “D”, “T”, “ID”. We will practice a lot in class this week, but extra practice at home would be great! Thank you!

Makerspace Update

We have been having so much fun during our Makerspace times in the classroom. Last week we finished a lot of our projects. Mrs. Kuras is allowing us to display the finished projects in the library. I had the students present to the class during our library time. Once we have some more finished projects to add to the already completed ones, our creations will be coming home!

I have had a few parents ask me what we could use to stock our shelves for Makerspace time. Here is a list of some of the things the students have been asking for.

  • tissue boxes (small or large)
  • shipping boxes, cereal boxes (pretty much any boxes that have not had food directly touching the cardboard and are still in good condition)
  • tissue paper
  • wrapping paper
  • googly eyes
  • playdoh
  • yarn and string
  • pipe cleaners

If you are interested in donating some purchased items, we would love Legos (even used- eBay sells them!) and fun craft items like rainbow scratch paper, iron melt beads, rainbow looms/refills , and any other building type kits you can think of. The students would enjoy any and all of the above!  Thank you for all of your support. This time has become one of the most anticipated times of the week.
