Good morning,

   It was nice to see and get to talk with many of you at conferences yesterday. I can't believe how fast the year is going, and that we have begun the second trimester!

Some notes for next week: On Wednesday we will have a quiz on verbs and verb tenses.  Thursday is our field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry.  Thank you to all the parents who volunteered to chaperone the trip.  We had an abundance of volunteers, but can unfortunately only bring four chaperones per homeroom.  A note will be going home to the those who will be chaperoning the trip.

   I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!  I am so thankful to have the opportunity to teach at such a wonderful school, with such great students and families.  Have a terrific holiday!

Halloween Fun!

Posted on Nov 06, 2017

We had a lot of fun celebrating Halloween!  We visited the science lab and tested the physical properties of candy corn.  We found the mass, volume, relative density to water, and solubility of regular candy corn and candy corn pumpkins.  The students had a great time in the lab and seeing whether the candy dissolved in the different liquids we used. 



Happy Halloween from Room 212!!
