February 25, 2021


Thank you to everyone who attended our Parent Teacher Conference this week. This was our last scheduled conference, but please let me know if you would like to meet again before the end of the year.

Summer School enrollment opens March 1st! This year, summer school will go from June 14-July 23. Enrollment will be online, but please let me know if you need a paper copy to fill out.

In the Classroom

In reading this week, we finished our Technology magazine by learning about hearing aids and cameras. The students and I had some amazing conversations about innovations and advancements in technology! We started our opinion writing project this weeks. Students were asked to identify what they believe is the most important invention: light bulb, camera, hearing aid, and telephone. This week, we began researching to find support for our opinion. Students used videos, websites, articles, and their magazine to take notes. Next week, we will begin outlining our opinion pieces. 

In math this week, students have been busy learning all about fractions. We used fraction circle pieces to discuss numerators and denominators. We also used fraction cards to learn about equivalent fractions. 

In science, we finished our Weather unit this week. On Tuesday, we had the opportunity for a virtual visit from meteorologist Kenton Gewecke! Kenton helped us learn about precipitation, hazardous weather, and climate change.
