Some Quick Classroom Updates:
We voted today with our Senate and House of Representatives on proposed bills to change our classroom. Two proposed bills have been approved by the executive branch (myself) to become law. This was after extensive debate and voting by students in our General Assembly. Here are the two new laws that can start tomorrow:
- The Gum Chewing Law: Students may now chew gum during class to help with focus. Gum may not be outside of the classroom or played with. All gum must be disposed of when leaving the room. Gum can be brought from home to chew during class.
- The Dojo Prize Law: All prize rewards that total greater than 10 Dojo Dollars will be reduced by $10 in price. This includes class rewards.
All of the students did a great job and took this very seriously. These “laws” will stay in effect until challenged by the Judicial Branch to see if they are classroom constitutional.
PTO Coupon booklets need returned if you are not planning to buy the Coupon Book for the fundraiser. The cost is $25.
Posted to our Class Story is the TDA prompt for Danitra Brown, if your student is working on some of it at home.
Our STEM club has started 3D printing their prototypes for their projects. They look great!
One of our 4th Grade literature groups finished “Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes”, by Eleanor Coerr. As part of finishing the book students learned how to fold paper cranes. We also decided to hang the cranes in our room, in the same way Sadako did in the story.
I have three math homework papers on my classroom floor tonight. This means that a few students may have accidentally dropped their homework. If this is your student, I have posted a picture of the homework to our Class Story. Have a great night.
