The Kindergartners in room 106 have also been working hard on constructing their models of what they envisioned as a fairer and more interesting Boston for children. In addition, to our Construction Unit we just launched our Informational Writing Unit. We have been working with our First Grade buddy class (Room 103) learning about whales. Together we talked about our “schema” all the things we know about whales, then we listened to a non-fiction story about whales, and then we talked about what we learned. Over the next few weeks in small groups we will be researching and writing our own informational books about different animals.

BPS School Climate Survey for Families All of our students are bringing home today the BPS School Climate Survey for Families. In an on-going effort to continuously improve quality of services that we provide our students, we are asking for ALL families to fill out this brief survey. Parents should fill out a separate survey for each student that you have enrolled in BPS. For us to get data back from this survey, we need at least a 30% return rate! Please take moment in complete this survey! Let us know if you have any questions.
Smart Smiles The Smart Smiles dentist is here this week! If you enrolled your child, the dentist will examine & clean the teeth, give a fluoride treatment, and fill small cavities if necessary. Each child is given a report to take home so parents know what care was done or if a more serious problem was seen. To learn more about this cost-free service or enroll your child, call Nurse Sandy right away!
