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: email@example.com
