Hello, and welcome to another school year! Take some time to explore our classroom website – click on the buttons above this post, listen to some songs we’ve recorded already, and see pictures of previous classes on the “About” page. Looking forward to a phenomenal year!

Back on October 14, 2014, we built our own landfills-in-a-bottle and on December 2, 2014, we finally excavated them! We found that NOTHING happened to almost all of the different types of trash we buried, which was the whole point of this activity. The more we do the 4 Rs, the more we can keep things from going into the landfill (where they can’t decompose, and ultimately, they’ll just take up space)! For pictures of this activity, click here!
As promised, here are the Neighborhood Clean-Up Reports! (Scroll down to the previous post to see how these came about.) Enjoy!

On October 8, Room 14 students took a stroll through the neighborhood and did some great community service! CLICK HERE and read more!
Soon you’ll be able to listen to news reports that Room 14 students created based on our Neighborhood Clean-Up findings! Stay tuned!
We recently started the class read-aloud Wonder – a Room 14 favorite and a fabulous story to start the school year because of its themes of acceptance, compassion, and friendship (among so many others). Thanks to some generous folks on the teacher donation website donorschoose.org, we were able to get a copy of Wonder for every student in Room 14! Make sure you ask your child for updates! Can you sense the excitement even before we started reading the story? =)
We are also reading the book Fourth Grade Rats and learning about different ways 4th grade students can respond to literature – through art, letters to characters, making connections, and more. Here are pictures of students engaged in some serious partner reading business!
