Greetings from Room C107!
To begin the 2nd Quarter we will be wrapping our studies of the United States and Canada. We had a test yesterday on the material covered in Chapters 4, 5, and 6. Today, the students will be starting on their State Floats for the Parade of States presentations next Monday. We will be researching in the Media Center today and tomorrow under the guidance of Media Specialist Mrs. Tagtow. Over the weekend the students are asked to create a “parade float” representing their given state. These will be due on Monday, November 22 so that we can display them for conferences. Ask your child for more details. I have attached(State Float Project) the research and project information sheet.
Also, I have started the distribution of the “Hagstrom Herald” each week as a way of organizing several activities that we do each week in class. On the information sheet one will find the Weekly Schedule, a place for the weekly Current Events assignment, the week KARE 11 Gridiron Geography question, Student Spotlights, and more. I have attached(Week 11 2010) this as well for your information.
Just a reminder next week are Fall Conferences. Monday and Tuesday from 4:30 until 7:40 pm and on Wednesday from 8 am to 11 pm. I hope to see you there.
Have a great week!
Mr. Shane Hagstrom
