This week students will be choosing a book during our library time to read as part of a “Book Report” writing project. Students will be required to read their book of choice by the time they return from spring break. Students do not have to chose a book from our school library they could also chose a book from our classroom library, the public library or one they haven’t read from home. I would suggest picking a book of a manageable length: 150-200 pages, fictional 3-5th grade level text. When kiddos return we will be working on a writing assignment as well as a project related tot their book. Please let me know if you have any questions.
On Friday, April 5th our class will go on a guided field trip to BRING Recycling, Glenwood Transfer Station (the “dump” and recycling center), and Short Mountain Landfill. We plan to leave at 8:45am and return at 11:50am, just in time for lunch at school. There is no cost for the field trip, as transportation will be paid for by the district’s EWEB grant. It is important that your child wear closed toed, comfortable walking shoes. If you would like to join us as a chaperone, please let me know or return the slip that will come home in Friday folders. We are only allowed seven additional people on the trip, so it will be first come first served. Chaperones will need to ride the bus, as parking at our first stop is limited and everyone has to be on the bus when we go to the landfill. This field trip will be a wonderful opportunity for students to see first-hand where our garbage and recycling goes. This knowledge will help support the work that Irving is doing as an Oregon Green School and will tie in with what students will continue to learn in their lessons by Partners for Sustainable Schools. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the field trip.
Room 11 is quickly running out of snack. We typically only provide snack after first recess when we have donations. Thanks to the families who brought in snack at the beginning of the school year! Our class really appreciated it! If you are able to contribute, healthy snacks like crackers, fruit snacks, etc. would be much appreciated.
