After another unexpected week of virtual lessons, the promise of a return to the lesson table in room 20 brings joy to my heart! A highlight of my days at home was spending time with the children via Zoom. I feel blessed to live in a time when we can come together virtually even if we are not able to be in the same room. A special thank-you to Ms. Mary and Mr. Anthony for helping in the classroom while I was unable to be there.
The upcoming week of school brings with it many opportunities for fun and learning! We will continue with our studies of the Medieval period with a focus on how simple machines were used. I am excited to share some models that will give the students a chance to experience for themselves the power of simple machines! This week's vocabulary list will include words about simple machines, as well. Students should study these words daily so they will be prepared for an activity that will require them to match each word with its definition on Friday. Lessons in math, writing, reading, and grammar will occur throughout the week and follow-up work will be assigned. Please note that because it is only a 4-day week, students will NOT have a spelling list or activity Friday.
I will send home a progress report on Tuesday. Please review, sign, and return this report to me on Wednesday. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns (firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Remind).
