October News

Mrs. Wechsler and Ms. Gascoigne have been busy with all of their amazing students in Room 15. We are working hard and becoming responsible scholars. The big news is that our iPads arrived; we are beginning to explore all of the wonderful apps, tools, and skills that this technology can assist us with! In math, we are working with the properties of addition and mental math skills. Language arts focuses on parts of speech, reading A-Z books, and writing a great paragraph. In life science, we are writing reports on the desert tortoise! We had a visit from the Music Van, the Humane Society on urban wildlife, and one from the SB Museum of Art. Our field trip to the museum and the public library afterward was an interesting adventure. Below is a photo of the fun and learning that took place with all of the instruments of the orchestra brought to us by the wonderful volunteers from the Music Van!
