Trillium Room April 17

This week, the ECO (Ecology in Classrooms and Outdoors) ladies came to talk to us about the rock cycle.  After learning about how forces inside the earth change and form rocks, we focused on igneous specimens.  Using a classification tree, we determined the names of 6 common igneous rocks.

We began a unit on economics this week.  We learned the difference between wants and needs, making lists and posters to distinguish the two.  We also learned about how some people’s job provide goods, while others provide services.

Perhaps your child has come home with seemingly random (weird) items in their backpack.  We have started “Giveaway Wednesdays.”  This is the time of year when the teachers start spring cleaning.  Miscellaneous art supplies, books and doo-dads are set out once a week.  We draw names out of a bucket and kids can decide if they want to take any of the treasures home.

We have turned in our final count for Sternwheeler chaperones (and YES, we have Friday school that week).  The chaperones will be:

Ms. Potts                           Ms, Kaufhold         Ms. McCoy                  Ms. Becker

Ms. Detter                        Mr. Gleason                  Ms. Hosler                  Ms. Brocato

Ms. Price                           Ms. Teseniar         Justin’s grandma         Mr. Moseley

Ms. Kneeland                  Aparna                  Ms. Kinnear                  Ms. Buresh

Ms. Brown                         Ms. Irving                  Grandma Toni         Ms. Carter

Ms. Dewey                           Huskey (2)                  Jolene Johnson         Johnson (2)

Ms. Pailthorp                  Mr. Wilson

 

Please let us know if we’ve messed up on this list!

Kristin Wold About Kristin Wold

This is my 25th year teaching in Corbett. I am incredibly fortunate to have brilliant, energetic colleagues; creative, supportive administrators; and parents who over-whelmingly love partnering with the school to make the best possible opportunities for their kids. I have a great job.
Professionally, my passion is working with emergent readers. I strongly believe that our first priority in teaching reading is to get kids to love books. We need to introduce them to authors and topics they’ll love so they’ll seek out reading for pleasure.
Personally, I have been married for 27 years and have a 14-year-old daughter who attends Corbett. I enjoy traveling, hiking in the gorge, and studying Japanese.
