Make sure to check the announcements scrolling at the top of the page for important dates, as well as the dates listed under my picture.
I have had several questions about the speech draft that is due this Tuesday. Your child needs to write what they have so far for their speech, in paragraph form, on a sheet of notebook paper. I will check them to see what they have so far and to give them feedback on what they need to fix. They will get a grade on this. However, it does not need to be perfect. I simply want to see that they have attempted to research their person and put the information in order. They have been given outlines to help them gather information and write their draft. They do not dress up on Tuesday! Only on the 31st when they do their speech in front of the class.
On the 31st, we will also be having a Fall Party. Your child was given a paper asking to bring in one item. We will be watching movies and having snacks after their speeches are finished.
The Chili Supper and Silent Auction is on Thursday, November 2nd. 5th grade classes are collecting gift cards for our baskets. Any donations or gift cards are appreciated! You can start sending them in now, in an envelope with "Silent Auction" written on it.
Finally, my classes have been given the opportunity to use Cloudbooks. They are devices similar to a laptop. We will be using these frequently in our lessons and the kids are very excited! I have asked all of them to bring a cheap pair of earbuds or headphones to use to watch videos. They will keep these in their pencil pouches or lockers. I am asking that they do not bring in expensive headphones or headphones that are wireless. Please let me know if you cannot supply these. I have some extras.
