What's going on in Room 125?

Weekly Update: 10-10-13

Hello Room 125 Families!

Here are some quick updates and announcements:

1. Tomorrow is picture day! I have order forms from two people. If you would like to order pictures please make sure to send in your form tomorrow. Please also let me know any hints for helping your child smile for the camera. Generally, the photographers have been very understanding and patient. We want to get the best photo we can so any tips you have would be much appreciated:)

2. Please see the new tab for Touch the World. Spread the word to friends and families to buy tickets! The money raised from ticket sales will go directly to our classroom and others to support the use of technology and inclusive practices. It is a low key, but fun party, which will hopefully help our classroom!  If you are unable to purchase tickets, but wish to come, please let me know. Our families are the guests of honor so we can work something out.  We are planning on performing as a class so if you are unable to attend please let me know ASAP.

3. Yesterday was the first day of Recess Buddies. I’ll keep you posted as we get farther along. The 5th graders seem excited!

6. Many students have been absent or sent home from school for illness. We try to keep the room clean and wash hands frequently, but if your child does get sick please remember:

-keep them home from school if they have had a fever, diarrhea, or vomiting within 24 hours

-call the attendance line to let them know that your child will be absent from school

7. Thanks to the suggestion of a parent, we are going to work on a “What I did today” project next week on our teacher work day. The intent is that we can work with students to identify some things from their day to take home and share with you. The will aid communication and recall. I would like to include 3-4 sentence stems that student can complete with a picture or word. Right now I am thinking:

-“I played with……[person]”

-“My special class was…..”

-“I worked on….”

Please let me know if you have any feedback on this form and we’ll try to incorporate ideas when we get things made.

8. No school Monday or Tuesday for students. See the calendar tab for other upcoming events.

Have a great long weekend! Let me know if you have any ideas or questions!

-Ms Wales
