Learning Experiences

Welcome back families of Room 217! 

These last few months will  fly fast! Here are a few updates for upcoming weeks.


MCA Testing: This will be your child's first experience with state testing. Encourage your child to do his/her best. Students will benefit from being well rested and 

eating well. Your child should plan on eating breakfast either at school or home on this day. Please have your child on time these days.

Our testing times will be: April 11, 12 & 13 from 9:45 to 11:00 (Reading MCA) and April 23 & 24 9:45-11:00 (Math MCA)


Content: Our current unit of inquiry: Where We Are In Place and Time has been a wonderful experience for our students. Your children have been researching ancient civilizations and their customs& traditions, community services and innovations. It has been hard work but good work! I am so proud of their commitment to research, writing and independence! 


Math: Our focus continues to be on comparing fractions, geometry and MCA preparation.
