What Did We Do This Week??

Our first full week in a while! In reading, we looked at Oregon’s transformation from a territory to a state. We also learned about some of the wars with Native Americans over land and how transportation changed our state. We also read the story “Cendrillon”, which is another take on Cinderella.  In math, we looked at 3-D shapes, nets and surface area.  In writing, we wrote future tense sentences. In science, we finished up our group science project. We also started a new unit in science about pollution. We went out and gathered litter, sorted it, and discussed where it came from. We have also been measuring the amount of trash we produce each day, and we are going to try and calculate how long it would take to fill the room. On Friday, we had an assembly. Nice job to Cody and Layla, who took part in a dance in front of the entire school! We also had DARE graduation on Friday…nice job 5th Graders!  🙂

Wild River Fundraiser!!!

I don’t know about all of you, but by the time I get home, the last thing I want to do is to fix dinner. Luckily, on Wednesday, I can avoid that dreaded chore and benefit CPE at the same time. This Wednesday, May 4th, Wild River is donating a portion of their proceeds to Central Point Elementary! So, if you can go, all day on May 4th, from 10:30 am till 10:00 pm…part of it will go to CPE!

What Did We Do Last Week?

Last week flew by! Possibly because we had no school on Monday, and I only taught on Tuesday and Thursday. 🙂  In reading, the 4th graders read a new National Geographic and talked about pollinators and tornadoes. They also did partner reading, where the practiced their oral reading fluency. In math, the 5th graders worked on angles…identifying, measuring, and drawing them. We also worked on science inquiry. We are slowly getting through our class experiment. We sent home the Science Fair packets, so the kids should be thinking about what kind of experiment they are going to do. We also did an art project on Friday. Now the classroom really looks like spring in Oregon. We have butterflies and flowers in the windows, and snowflakes hanging from the ceiling. I should probably get those down. Eventually. 🙂

This week….OMSI is quickly approaching for the fifth graders. They need to have their permission slips, money, and medical forms in by Wednesday. We are also going to wear our black CPE shirts on Thursday, so some might need to check the laundry. 🙂 Fourth graders will be combined with Mr. Lee’s fourth graders with a substitute. They are going to still have school…reading, writing, math, etc., and they will be responsible for all their work on those days, so don’t let them talk you into staying home since we “won’t be doing anything with the 5th grade gone.” 🙂

Alrighty….ready for another crazy fast week???

Collecting For Japan

We have been watching CNN Student News, and the kids were moved by one story in particular. They were talking about a third grade class who had been collecting money for a field trip, and when they found out about Japan, they decided to send their money to help. The kids were very impressed by this, and wanted to do the same thing. So, we have been collecting change to send to the Red Cross to help out in Japan. I hate to compete with Jog-A-Thon, but I think it is great for them to find a way to help others. So, if you want to send in some change, we’ll be collecting till next week, when I take it in and cash it to send to the Red Cross.  Thanks!
