Wednesday was the end of the quarter. We have been busy working on finishing up our discussion of ecosystems. We have also started a discussion about maps.
In reading, we have been discussing a book entitled The Talking Cloth. This book is about traditions, so we have been making connections between previous books that are also about traditions.
This past week has been busy with activities to learn more about Red Ribbon Week. We were fortunate to have an assembly where we could talk with a police officer about the importance of Red Ribbon Week. Students also enjoyed decorating posters about Red Ribbon Week while we enjoyed our popsicles that were a reward for reaching our reading goal.
We had a special event Friday morning, which was a school wide field trip to the Convention Center. Many students enjoyed listening to Mark Twain play the banjo. Students also enjoyed some of his magic tricks. They enjoyed listening to his stories and picturing the details in their minds.
Looking ahead to next week, we will be having parent teacher conferences. Please sign up online through the Fairfield Community School District website. Please contact me if you have any questions about how to do this if you have not yet signed up for conferences. I will be calling tomorrow to check in with you about parent teacher conferences and any other concerns.
