This week…
Along with our study of the solar system and a related art project, we had the 2nd Great Lesson: The Story of The Coming of Life. I did not get to do all the extensions I planned to do, but the year is young and I can easily fit them into the schedule. We are trying to get our early assessments finished as well. 

Next week and beyond…
Remember: The Science Factory trip is on Wed. the 24th. We will leave in the early AM and return after lunch.   
With the solar system discussed we can talk a bit about Earth and its geographical features. We will also discuss hemispheres, map-making, and maybe the Clock of Eras.

Remember that we use inside shoes in our classroom. If you have not yet provided your student with a pair of shoes to use strictly for indoor use, please do so ASAP. Thank you. 

The Ridgeline Rising Silent Auction and Block Party is just around the corner (October 11th to be exact)! Each classroom selects a theme for a basket to be included in the silent auction and students are invited to contribute theme related items valued at $10 or less OR donate $10 cash (to be used by volunteers to purchase items for the basket). Our classroom’s basket theme is Outer Space!  

Contact Shannon Hoell, our classroom basket organizer or Cynthia if you have any questions.
