Classroom of the Week – 1st Grade Room 106

In room 106, we have been busy becoming stronger readers, mathematicians, engineers and scientists! In reading, we just started unit three where we have been learning about finding the main topic and key details of different informational texts. In writing, we have been practicing adding “zippy verbs,” to our stories to make them more interesting and exciting! Keep a look out for our “My Monster Can..” Halloween stories next week! In Math we have been working on addition strategies, like doubles, make a ten and counting on. In science, we are beginning our sound unit where we will investigate, and experiment what sound is, and how it is made. We are practicing being kind and thoughtful by writing letters, and post-its to our friends. We are looking forward to more learning, and fun throughout the year!

All parents and guardians who have not previously created a portal account but have supplied District 54 with an email address will receive an email during the first week of October with a direct link to sign up for the portal. If you do not receive an email but would like to create a portal account, please contact our office. If you are unable to access the parent portal and require a paper copy of your student’s report card, please contact our office.

From your school nurse:

We just wanted to remind you to periodically examine your child’s head for lice. It is especially important to look behind the ears and at the nape of the neck, for crawling lice and nits.  While the transmission of lice in school is not likely, it is good to get in the habit of checking your child’s head regularly. Please feel free to call the school nurse if you have questions about how to make this practice part of your routine at home.

Classroom of the Week – 1st Grade Room 105

It has been a very busy year in room 105. In reading, we just started unit three. In this unit, we will be reading a lot of  informational text and we will learn about how plants and animals grow and change. In writing, we have been practicing adding a bold beginning to our stories and we will start to learn about ‘zippy words’ next week. In science, we have learned all about staying healthy by avoiding germs, taking care of our teeth and making healthy food choices. We are looking forward to more learning and fun throughout the year!

Classroom of the Week – 6th Grade Room 209

First of all, there are (and we can’t forget them) chrome books! We are one the five schools in this district that has had the privilege of giving their 6th classes chrome books. This has opened many new ways for learning including Google classroom which is just like real classroom but it eliminates the hassle off papers and lost work. Not that teacher look at their students’ screens to make sure they stay on task instead of the students just searching up pusheen wallpapers.(I know nothing)

Another privilege that 6th grade students have is FUSE (developed by Northwestern University) where can exercise their ingenuity. They can design game with an app called Stencyl, they could make marble roller coaster that loops, maybe even make a game controller using the MakeyMakey, or they could make themselves a custom keychain. There are many more projects to choose from! 6th grade is very privileged with all these resources​
