Testing, Testing, Testing…
Testing will resume for our class on Thursday, September 14-Tuesday, September 19, 2017. Make-ups are scheduled for Wednesday, September 20, 2017. Please remember: early to bed and eat a good breakfast! The kids are working hard and we are so proud of their focus and effort put into each section of both the CogAT and IOWA. The end is near and we look forward to getting back to our normal routine.
Thank you to the parents that have provided our class with healthy snacks and water bottles during testing. We greatly appreciate your generosity!

What’s Happening in Room 301…
This week in Reading, Writing, and Social Studies, we are continuing our research on the six American Indian regions (Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, Southeast, Plains, and Arctic). The students have divided up into groups based on interest level and have researched the climate, geography, tribes, food, art, and home/lifestyle for each region. We love seeing the excitement on their faces as they are learning more about their own region and those of others. Our class is using a variety of sources (nonfiction passages, books, and technology – websites and documentary videos) to find information. On Friday, each group will complete a STEM project to build a traditional home found in their particular region. Be sure to send in supplies (a blue note was sent home in the progress report last Thursday). Each group will present their information in front of the class next Wednesday, September 20, 2017. Individuals will be graded on their participation, knowledge of the topic, speaking skills when presenting, and listening skills when other groups are presenting.
In Math, we will begin our subtraction unit: 3-digit and 4-digit numbers with regrouping.
