Classroom Notes

Greetings!

Team 20 had another busy and productive week.  During language workshop, kids continued writing photo stories and began sharing rough drafts at Grandpa's chair.  After editing and revising, we will create a zine on our blog to share our work.  In math, we practiced comparing fractions.  We visited an art exhibit at Reed College’s Cooley Gallery.  During Reed Science kids looked into the question "How do streams form?"  Kids presented Oregon history timeline markers.  On Friday, we celebrated Valentine’s Day in the classroom by making a mail delivery system using art supplies and delivering and opening mail.  We also began The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963, by Christopher Paul Curtis.  There are photos on our classroom Twitter feed of these activities and more.

The Lewis Family Dance is this Friday and features the Lonesome Teacher Trio.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m.  Lewis is hosting the district’s Educate & Engage conference about the roles and implications of technology both in and out of today's classroom during mid-March.  Sign up is open through February 29.
