2014-2015 School Year
Northshore Elementary School
Jana Heimer 2nd -3rd grade VENTURE
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it's the only thing that ever has."- Margaret Mead
Spelling and handwriting are regular classroom subjects. I am more interested in their ideas than if the words spelled correctly.
I use the money collected from the $25 donation to purchase all materials, books, resources that are needed throughout the year.
At the end of each class, the students will Tweet about Venture. They will tell about a three things they did in Venture that day. The purpose of this is so that you and your child can discuss some of the things we did that day, whether it is something they liked or didn’t like. It is also my intention to keep you informed on what we are doing. I will occasionally indicate any minor problem that we may have had that day (talking too much, work not being completed, etc).
There will be an independent research project.
We will go on a field trip (s). I am not sure where or when right now. They usually correspond with a unit of study.
TBA. We have made jewelry, sold candy and popsicles, collected band-aids, and had a talent show in the past .
As a class we will discuss the basics. Students will be encouraged to regularly play each other. There is a District chess tournament each Spring. Northshore will send one student from each grade (2-6).
Students will receive a grade in each of the following areas: Thinking Skills, Creativity, Personal Development and Research
