Hello Room 3 families and welcome to week 9 of distance learning!  Yes, I did say week 9!  Whew!  You guys are doing an amazing job.  I am so grateful for all you do to keep our classroom a community of learners.  We have a thriving, vibrant Seesaw classroom and our zoom meetings are full of beautiful faces ready to zoom once again each morning.  During this time of distance learning Jacob and I have seen another side of your children that we don’t normally get to see.  It has been a joyful and humbling experience.  Thank you for flexing with us.


This week we will expand our view from butterflies to the wide world of insects.  A number of students requested this specific topic and I am happy to oblige!  Last week we took a closer look at butterflies, their life cycle, and transformation process.  Some students chose to research different types of butterflies.  I love to see all their researching skills going to good use in this distance learning environment!


Wednesday:  We are encouraging students to present their projects, story writing, or other activities that they are really proud of during our Wednesday sharing time.  This is a great opportunity to work on presentation skills, reading, and public speaking.  Yay!

This Wednesday will be: bring your pet or stuffie to zoom day.  See you there!


Video Project:  Thank you to all the families who have already submitted their videos and photos of their student to Jacob for our special end-of-year video project.  They look great!  I can’t wait to see the finished video.  J  If you haven’t submitted your material yet please do so by Friday so that we have time to put it all together.  Thank you for your help with this.  It is going to be very special.
