Welcome to Red Ribbon WEek
What a great day today! The entire school went out on the field and took a picture together. This week celebration of Red Ribbon Week will include:
Tuesday: Crazy Hair Day
Wednesday: CraZy Socks Day
Thursday: Crazy Hat Day
Friday: Dress as your favorite sports character.
Each week you need to visit Study Island and complete the activities that are assigned. These assignments are based on the things that we are learning in class, so it will be tied directly to our instruction.
We are starting a new unit in math - building up a deeper understanding of multiplication and division. Some of the topics from this week will continue to be review. I know they are very repetitive, but keep practicing it will pay off.

Today we started our classroom redesign project. With this project the students are measuring our classrooms and the furniture available to them, then they are going to redesign our classroom to meet 21st century learning skills. (Learn more about the 21st century skills HERE)
The projetct in clues the following pieces:
Things to remember.
This is one of my favorite projects, and I cannot wait to see the ideas that come in to play as they work through this process.
When measuring our furniture we rounded some of the measurements off to the nearest foot. Below are the pieces of furniture available and their measurements:
Tables (6 available) 6ft x 3ft
Desks 2 ft x 2 ft
Double Desks 4 ft x 2 ft
Computer table (required) 7 ft x 3 ft
Teacher's desk 4 ft x 3 ft
Shelves 3 ft x 1 ft
File cabinet 2ft x 1 ft
The computer table is the only piece that must stay in the room. We can get rid of anything else, including my desk.
A couple of other notes:
Book fair is this week.
Red Ribbon week is next week.
We are currently doing a fundraiser for the Dammer family. More information to follow.
I am putting out a call for Legos. If you have any sets that you would like to donate to our classroom, We would greatly appreciate it! :)
Thanks for everything y'all do to support your student in the learning adventure!
For homework this week I would like the kids to work on two things:
1. Read each night. 20-30 minutes.
2. Each night we will be building up our digital portfolio. So tonight, they need to complete whatever they did not finish in class today. Most of the kids got their sites created today. These sites are hosted by the district and not viewable outside of our district. To view the sites, the students need to login using their Google login. To view some of the sites that were created today click here - The kids know the page password.
I look forward to meeting and talking with everyone at conferences this week. Remember there are not pre-scheduled times. After school tomorrow, there will be a sign-up sheet outside my classroom. Each conference will last about 10-15 minutes.
Thanks for everything.
This week we are learning about sea otters, so I thought I would show you how you can draw one. Enjoy!
