CHESS UPDATE!!!

Sorry for the wrong dates on the flyer yesterday! 
 
The Chess Club will meet on THURSDAYS again this year at 8:00.  The first club meeting will be on September, 28th.   
 
Chess club is for 2nd - 5th Graders.  

ALL BOARDS ARE DUE TOMORROW!!

All boards are to be done tomorrow!  We are not spending any more time on them in class.   The students need to bring them home and finish if they have not.  They will be graded Wednesday in class.  Most of them are finished...just a few still gluing!  Don't forget to bring in anything that goes with the presentations.  (each grade level is different)  STUDENT'S KNOW!  :)

Chess club

The end is near!!  Today was our last Chess Club of the year.  Next week is STAAR testing and we will be winding down the year after that.  

BOARDS ARE DUE!!

OK GT Parents!  It is that time of year!  Please send in a Trifold Board for your student to display their work on.  
 
1st Grade: No need for a board...we are doing the Creativity Unit!
2nd Grade:  Need a small Trifold Board...not the super large because several of their things go on the table to display.  They also need a bag with 5 items inside from home that go with their topic.
3rd Grade:  Need a medium sized Trifold and we are filming our commercials beginning on Wednesday.  (so any costumes or props needed will need to be here by Wed.)
4th Grade:  Need a large board.  Lots goes on this board!
5th Grade:  Need a medium sized board and a small binder.   Plan out display in College school spirit or in Career attire.  
6th Grade:  Depends on the project...but they will know!  :)  
 
This is always a busy time of the year for GT...but the projects are going to be amazing!  I'm so proud of all their efforts!  The ideas this year are just AMAZING!  
 
Showcase is planned for Thursday, May 18th here at school from 2:00 to 3:00.  Parents will be invited!   
The District showcase is that evening from 6:00 to 7:30 at Creekview Elementary and 4th and 6th Grades will participate.  I will choose a few projects from the other grades to attend. :)

GT Nominations

It is that time again!  Time to nominate students to test for GT.  I will be accepting nominations from teachers and parents through March 22nd.  Testing will begin shortly after that!  Please email me at cecelialummus@tomballisd.net if you would like your student tested this year.  

Chess Club Cancelled

Chess club will be cancelled this week!  I am off campus at a PBL training most of the week.  I will be back on Friday for Robotics.

JR. FLL Robotics Club

Please wear your robotics Tshirt on Friday.  We need to take a team picture for our webpage!!

CHESS CLUB CANCELLED ON THURSDAY Jan. 12

Chess club will be cancelled on Thursday Morning because I will be off campus all day setting up for the UIL competition this weekend.  Chess will resume next week!   

2nd, 4th, and 5th grades Showcase

The showcases will be on Friday 13th during the GT class.  We started a bit later this year due to the new testing procedures, but the projects will be finished by next week.  We will work on presentations when we return in January so everyone needs to bring in a trifold display board with their student's name on the back.
 
2nd grade:  I'm super proud of these little ones...they have done a great job and are so enthusiastic that I have agreed to let them do a 3rd grade project next semester!!  CURIOSITA!!   They are so excited!!  
 
4th grade:  Be mindful over the holidays that you will need to bring in 10 artifacts of your culture.  These are not necessarily things FROM the place but they need to have a relationship to your culture studied.  YES...it can be food!  :)   That was a big hit last year!  You all have some great ideas already!  
 
5th grade:  Don't forget that your project requires a visual piece.  We have discussed this in class at length!  Some examples for parents:  Lego tower built of the Eiffel tower to represent a trip to Paris, a big stuffed Kangaroo to represent a trip to Australia, or a 3D puzzle of the Empire State Building to represent a trip to New York.   This piece is a large visual...not a coin, or small token from a trip.  It will be a conversation piece in your display!  The places they have chosen are great topics and I think they are going to really enjoy the next project!  WE are going to COLLEGE!!  
 
We will use the Library for our Presentations in January:
2nd Grade:  9:35 - 10:05
4th Grade:  2:45 - 3:15
5th Grade:  1:45 - 2:15
 
NOTE:  the 3rd grade project is GOING GREAT!!!  Utopia is being created.  We will be building Utopia when we return so please send in a foam board (poster size) in January when we return.  We will design our cities on these boards...be thinking of what you would like to use to construct!  Ex:  boxes, legos, clay, etc???   Sky is the limit...and it is my first year to do this!  :)   This group is so creative!!  Ask them about their project so far...they have established a location, written the charter and government!   Interesting to watch them develop this Utopia!!  I am excited to see them through to the end!!  Could not have asked for a better bunch to do this with!!
 
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!  Enjoy the break with your little ones!!

Robotics Tshirt order form

Here is the Robotics order form.  Tshirts are $9.   THIS FORM IS DUE FRIDAY at 3:00 PM!  I can not accept late orders as we are asking the company to rush this order to us by next week so the competition team have their shirts for their first competition.  The club shirt will be a little different.  It will not have the number and will have a different team name up top!
