Weekly Overview January 23-27


Can you believe it’s almost February?  This month is just flying by.  We have begun learning about Fractions in math, have been busy pre-writing for Persuasive essays in Writing, and plugging away in Independent Reading and Guided Reading groups daily.  In addition, our Artist-In-Residence, Meredith, has students beginning a new project in class:  Artist trading cards.  It is really neat.

This reminds me- our class will be attending an afternoon field trip to the Hyde Park Art Center on February 8 in the afternoon (leaving at 12:15 after lunch).  Our class needs 2 chaperones for this trip.  The time spent at the art center will be 1 1/2 hours, plus time to travel to and from the school.  Please email me if you can help out:  agkrecik@cps.edu
