Dear Parents of Room 9,
We made it through a very busy week last week! Literacy Week, Book Fair, 100th Day of School, Valentine's Day, Lunar New Year....PHEW!
Now we can prepare for KID TOWN!! Kid Town is the Social Studies simulation that I talked about way back in August at Back to School Night. The children will be participating as citizens of their "town". They will name it, be consumers and workers in it, and make decisions/laws for it. This community building unit is exciting and fun for the children (and it will be for you, too!).
Please mark your calendars for Thursday, March 29th at 8:30. We will hold our Town Hall Meeting that day, where you will be invited to experience Our Town first-hand. There will be more information coming home soon, so please look for any letters from me and also ask your child what we are doing to prepare. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.
**If you could start collecting toilet paper or paper towel rolls from home, I would really appreciate it. There is a special project that we will be getting ready for in March, but one of the major parts of it requires the rolls. Please make sure the rolls are completely finished and has no paper left on it.**
Thank you always for your support in the classroom and at home of your student's learning! Looking forward to seeing a lot of you this week! Have a great week!
