Newsletter 7 – 9/22/18

Weekly Highlights 

We spent the week cutting, collaging, manipulating text on a page, printing images, and creating our zines. We extended our deadline to next Friday, with class time on Monday and Tuesday. These pieces are great and we are so excited to celebrate them with you soon.

Book clubs are in full swing, some clubs will have their final meeting and others have two more!

We saw The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe as a play on Friday morning and then did some comparing/contrasting work with the beginning of the film Friday afternoon. Kids drew many parallels between setting and character, while noting that the historical context was more apparent in the movie.

In CPR this week, we started talking about listening, what it looks like, feels like, and sounds like.


We collected homework yesterday reflecting on the conversations you had with your kiddos at home. Please check in with your child on whether or not they completed this assignment, they can still turn it in on Monday.

We will send home another homework assignment on Monday!

We plan on having a Dress Up Punk day on Friday 9/28. We will go over guidelines for what this means in class, but all clothing must still adhere to the TPS dress code (which we have been discussing in connection to our read aloud!).

  • Snacks this week: Adams to Fish
  • Snacks next week: Gomez to McGranahan
