A book order will be coming home today. Orders must be paid by check or placed online at Scholastic.com. I cannot accept cash. The Class Activation code for online orders is: GRFNP Scholastic book orders are a great way to buy inexpensive books as rewards and incentives for your child, and your order earns bonus points for our class to be used on books or supplies! September 9 is the due date for this month.
Last Wednesday we did an activity called Saving Sam. Students worked in groups of three to complete a challenge of getting Sam, the worm, into his lifejacket, and then back into his boat. The "catch" was that they couldn't touch Sam with their hands! They had to use paper clips and their own creative thinking. It was a fun activity that required cooperation in a group and problem solving!
