What have you been doing?

Well, we have had our first week away from each other and my class has done a great job learning from home. We were able to video conference twice as a class and I have had many pictures come to me that I want to share. This is what video conferencing looked like on Friday from my device. 🙂


If you haven’t had a chance to yet go to this link and have your child do a quick video to share. This was so much fun. To be able to participate your child should log in using their school Gmail account. Look for me and Thor! 🙂

Enjoy the photos!

Updates Room 205!


Our class has earned 47 Outstanding awards! Each time we accumulate ten Outstandings we vote on what teambuilding activity we would like to do.

This time we voted to have lunch together in our classroom on Friday, February 14. I offered to collect money and order pizza for those who would like to have pizza brought in. Pizza will be $1.00 per slice and your child may order two slices if they choose to. I will be ordering on Thursday at the end of the day so please have money sent in by then. 🙂

Below is a link I would like every parent to fill out so I know how to plan for the kids.

Order Form

Please have your children bring in their choice of beverage and pack their usual snacks for the day. Sack lunch and ordering hot lunch is always an option if your child does not want to order pizza.
