This week we had a short week with no school and on Thursday, the whole first grade team met at my house to plan our PBL projects this year. We will be sending home a note in the folder this week in regards to our first project. We will be looking for community members 55+ for students to interview. Our letter home will give exact details and I will post the letter to the blog as well. We will begin our first project “What’s the past got to do with it?” the week of October 21st and will wrap up around the week of December 16th.
Since I was absent Thursday, we had a substitute teacher. When I came in Friday for our professional development day, I found a glowing note of how great the class was and she could not believe what writers they were! She apparently bragged to every staff member she met about the amazing writers in room 137! We will be celebrating these kind words as a class on Monday!
Finally, we will have MAP testing this week on October 17th and 18th. Please make sure your child eats a nutritious breakfast and that they get plenty of sleep the night before.
- Library is Monday. Please return books if your student wants to check out books.
- PE is Wednesday and Friday. Remember sports shoes.
- MAP testing October 17th and 18th.
