The take-home work is on the counter next to the door. Just pick up a project and bring it back in a day or so. A sample or directions will be included.
In class help has many options. For example:
Mondays- collect library books from students
Daily- put notices in student cubbies
Weekly- lead a small group activity; sharpen pencils
Monthly- check in student homework; prep new homework packets
Occasionally- assist with special art, science, or technology projects; be a guest reader (or listener)
Here are some in-class projects that I have planned:
O.R.E.O cookie project- we’ll be stacking, measuring, and graphing Oreo cookies in a nationwide project.
Symbolic Monarch Migration- we’ll be decorating paper butterflies and sending them to children in Mexico as we learn about migration.
Tulip Garden- we’ll be planting tulip bulbs and comparing our observations with other classes around the world through Journey North.
Donations needed: Oreos (4 packages); tulip bulbs (24 or more); potting soil and a barrel.
There are many more projects in the works, including Twitter and Skpe; but I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself. Let’s just say that you will be amazed and eager to join us.
