What's going on in Room 125?

Breakfast at Edison!

Please read for an important update on the breakfast procedure beginning Monday, April 22:

We will begin to follow the school procedure for breakfast. This will allow us to be more part of the school community and routines. If your child wants/needs to eat breakfast at school, you can arrive as early as 8 to the cafeteria where breakfast will be served. At 8:30, a para from our room will be in the cafeteria to support students who wish to eat breakfast. Breakfast closes at 8:45, when paras will assist students back to the classroom to begin the school day.

If your child does not wish to eat breakfast, you can drop them off in the classroom as you have done in the past, between 8:30 and 8:45.

If your student rides the bus, they will have the opportunity to eat breakfast in the cafeteria, just as the other students do.

Let me know if you have any questions about this school procedure. We will begin this Monday, so be sure to drop your child off in the cafeteria if they want breakfast.

Have a great weekend!

Weekly Update: 4-11-13

Hello! What a fun week….a snow day, a 2nd grad field trip, and horseback riding tomorrow! Here are some other reminders:

Please check out the updated calendar tab…there are quite a few things coming up in April! Please remember to send your child in their Edison t-shirt with a sack lunch on field trip days!

I have gotten one parent perception survey back (thank you!). We need surveys from 100% of our class for the school. These were sent home in Thursday folders last week. Please make sure to fill these out and return in a sealed envelope to me by tomorrow!

Remember the Pen Pal project we started with my cousin’s classroom in Ohio in the fall? We received some more letters! Since they have a bigger class, each student chose one of ours to write to. Each student in Room 125 has a great packet of letters which I will send home once we finish our responses. Keep your eyes out for our next Pen Pal homework assignment which will help answer some questions that we will expand on and write in class!

Next Wednesday I will be out on some school visits for some professional development about inclusion and Rethink Autism. I will have a sub that day. The paras should be here and as always I anticipate and expect the schedule to run as smoothly and normally as possible.

Let me know if you have any questions about this week or what’s coming up the last two months of school!

Weekly Update: 4-4-13

Hello there! Hope everyone had a great spring break.  Here are some updates from our first week back:

This week we focused on routines after our nice long break. There were a few minor changes in the schedule, including some new centers and center groups. Also, I started co-teaching 2nd grade science with Ms. Martin. We are experimenting with this teaching method to promote meaningful inclusion and academic gains for all students.

There are lots of fun things coming up in April! We will be headed to Acres of Opportunity Ranch every Friday this month. Please remember to send your child with weather appropriate clothing/layers and a water bottle every Friday for the remainder of the school year.

Next week second grade has a field trip on Thursday. The following week kindergarten and first grade will be headed on trips. You should have received (or will soon be receiving) info about your child’s grade level trip.

Please make sure to fill out the parent perception surveys and send back to school in a sealed envelope by next week. These will be in Thursday folders today. If our whole class returns these surveys, we will get a popsicle party!

Let me know if you have any questions about what’s happening at Edison or what your individual child is working on. Lots of things going on in these last two months of school!

Have a great day:)

-Ms Wales
