This week we also started a new science unit about clouds, weather, and the water cycle. We continued our math unit on measuring and started collecting data though taking / giving surveys. It was another fantastic week in Room 203!
Lots of News to Share
I will be attending a technology conference in Springfield on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please call the office if your child will be going home a way other than he or she usually does.

GENIUS HOUR: COMING SOON!!!
Your child may have mentioned an incredible thing that we are getting ready to start! It is called Genius Hour and I cannot wait to begin! It will give your child roughly an hour a week to learn about something that interests them. They will pick a driving question and with guidance, research the topic before sharing what they have learned. I will be sending more information home soon but the plan is to begin Genius Hour in late March. Stay tuned for more details!!! If you are available to help one or two days a week, I would love to have some parents involved in this process. It will be from 12:35-1:05 two days a week for 6 weeks. The days are still being determined.
The Book Fair will be open all next week. If your child brings money, please put the money in a sealed envelope with their name on the outside. Our entire class will visit the Book Fair on Friday during our regular scheduled time. Students will be asked to not go during the school day on Tuesday or Wednesday since I will have a sub in my classroom. They will , however, be allowed to go before or after school with a parent if you would like to take your child at that time. Thank you!
