We are starting our salmon unit soon. We will be learning about the life cycle of salmon and raising salmon from the egg stage. They will be delivered in about a week as part of an EWEB grant. We will be releasing the baby salmon in December into the Willamette River at Alton Baker Park. This ties in with our social science goal of communities, as this is a big part of our community. We discussed different kinds of communities today using the Weekly Reader. The students are excited about this unit!
We will be changing our PE days to Tuesday, Thursday and Friday during the time that the PE trainers are working with us for the PE grant. Please be sure your child has appropriate clothing for those days. I am sorry for the change in schedule…It was out of my control! We will need to wear PE shoes THIS coming Monday as well because they will be doing the PE assessment that day instead of today (Friday). Thanks for your understanding!
I would love to have a volunteer on Monday or Tuesday for “busy” work…correcting papers, filing, etc. If that could be you…would you please let me know ASAP? Thanks so much for all of your help and support in this VERY large classroom.
