Since mid October, our class has been learning about flooding. Our end goal is to design a solution to protect our school from a possible future flood. We are at the stage where we are building floodplain models of the school area. I have created a video that shows a bit of what we have been doing and will post it as soon as I figure out how...
It is nearing the end of our summer and we are gearing up for a new school year. I am looking forward to getting started. This summer has been packed with lots of trips and big happenings. I started out the summer by driving to Klamath Falls to see my son and his wife graduate from college. Then my whole family and I went on a trip to Northern California to visit the Redwoods. I spent the next month working on projects in my home. One of which was painting my kitchen, living, and dining rooms. Then it was time to plan my son's send off party--he and his wife were moving to Chicago to start his career. Then for the next week, I spent as much time with my son as I could before he left for Chicago. This week I am finally starting to think about the upcoming school year. Whew!!! Needless to say, I have lots to do. I will spend next week in classes where I will be designing a science unit on floods. So much to do and so little time!
Welcome back to a new year at Walterville, and for those of you that are new to Walterville: Welcome!
We have had a great start to our school year. I am really enjoying getting to know my new class. Even with 32 students, we are working hard at learning the rules and expectations for my room.
Parent Volunteers: If you signed up to help in my room, I will be sending a letter home shortly to ask what subject areas you would be willing to help with, or if you want to do prep work. I will then begin constructing a schedule. I am anticipating being ready for your help the week of September 23rd.
