Stonebrae Room 4 – Weekly Newsletter for 3/20/15

Dear Room 4 Families,

Your child had a fun-filled week. They were very excited to go on their field trip to Lawrence Hall of Science. They learned about vertebrates and had the opportunity to explore the skeletal structures of various live animals. Room 4 students loved exploring the science exhibits and watching a 3-D movie made by National Geographic. There are parents in both Room 4 and Room 7 that have requested that pictures of their children not be posted publicly online in albums, on Facebook, etc. Please be mindful of that when sharing pictures.

This week we have been lifting the level of narrative writing by focusing on small moment stories and stretching that moment across many pages. Your child has been learning to work in cooperative groups on assignments and projects. We are working on decoding the vocabulary in word problems and using multiple methods to solve mixed math problems.

Your child was assigned an insect report to complete as homework during spring break. The project is due on Monday, April 13th. I will be out of the country and unavailable until April 7th. Please check your child’s backpack for the insect book as I will not be able to give you another copy until we return to school. The assignment sheet is available to view here:

General Announcements:

  • Report cards will be distributed on Monday. Please check your child’s backpack for it. You may keep the report card and sign the envelope for your child to bring back to school on Tuesday. If you have any questions regarding the report card, please contact me after Spring Break and I will be happy to discuss it with you.
  • Next week is spirit week. The theme days are posted up around campus. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately and is wearing proper shoes, a jacket, etc.
  • Spring break starts on Monday, March 30th. School will resume on Tuesday, April 7th.
  • If you are interested in chaperoning on our field trip in May to CuriOdyssey, please make sure that your name is on Mr. Chen’s excel spreadsheet. I will be submitting the list of names when we come back after Spring Break.
  • Our classroom could use boxes of tissues, antibacterial wipes, and Scotch 3M brand permanent glue sticks.
  • We had some issues with our subscription for LingT Language, but it should all be fixed now. Assignments have resumed as normal.

Next Week’s Homework Links:

Have a wonderful weekend and Spring Break with your families! This is the last newsletter before Spring Break. I will be answering e-mails until 4pm on Monday, March 23rd. Any other questions or immediate concerns, please direct to the office.

-Ms. You
