What's going on in Room 125?

Weekly Update, 10-11-12

on October 11, 2012

This week we talked about fall and made some cool artwork which is hanging in the hallway. We collected, sorted, and investigated leaves for science and read “Cat’s Colors” by Pat Cabrera for story time. We continue to work on the voice scale and top/bottom.  There are some exciting events coming up in the next week…check it out!

Picture day!

Picture day is tomorrow, October 12!  We have been practicing smiling all week and are ready to be stars for the camera! If you have any advice for helping your child take a good picture, let us know!


As mentioned in my note home this week, conferences will be held next Thursday, October 18 and the following Tuesday, October 23. I am looking forward to talking with your family,  celebrating your child’s successes, and collaborating about more ways to support them at school and at home. For this round of conferences you may opt to come to school as usual or set up a home visit. I would love to see students’ homes and learn more about your family if we do a home visit! Please let me know which day and option you prefer as soon as possible so we can set up our meeting!

Fall Festival

Fall festival is next Friday, October 19th after school! This is our biggest classroom fundraiser and is a lot of fun!  For the second year in a row Room 125 will be in charge of the popcorn table.  All of the money that we make will go directly to our classroom. This is money that we will use for apps and cases for our new iPads!  (Remember, though we are very fortunate to have 4 new iPads coming our way, we are reliant on fundraisers such as this to purchase the “extras” like apps and protection). There will be all kinds of other fun tables and activities going on behind the school. Please stay or come for a bit after school to support our classroom, have fun, and meet other students and teachers from your child’s classes!


Shawn will be celebrating his 8th birthday on Wednesday!

Classroom Supplies

As we get deeper into Fall and Cold season, we are in need of Clorox-type wipes and/or cleaning spray to keep our room free of germs. If you are either to send either/both in, we would greatly appreciate it!

Please let me know if you have any questions about the upcoming events. I am looking forward to seeing you for conferences and Fall festival!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Ms Wales
