Es hora de inventar!

Estimados Padres,
¡Nos estamos preparando para nuestra 3ra Convención de Inventos Anual.  Los últimos 3 años han sido un éxito y queremos asegurarnos que participen más alumnos y que tengan la oportunidad de inventar algo.   
 
La convención de inventos es un evento que le da la oportunidad a los alumnos de inventar una solución para algún problema que tengan, o mejorar algún invento que ya exista. 
 Se anima a todos los alumnos de 1ro a 5to grado a que participen en este evento.  
 
Este evento va a reforzar las habilidades de ciencias, alfabetización y matemáticas, fomentará la curiosidad y mas que nada ofrecerá la oportunidad de divertirse mientras aprenden.
 
Mandamos las formas de Intento de Invento el pasado 4 de diciembre. Si necesitan otra están disponibles en la oficina o en la pagina de red del PTA.   Una vez entregada la forma su hijo recibirá un paquete que incluye las Reglas e Instrucciones.  La información en el paquete esta también disponible en el sitio de red del PTA de Reidy Creek – www.reidycreekpta.org
 
Los inventos serán calificados el 24 y 25 de Febrero para seleccionar los ganadores de cada nivel de grado. ¡Y por supuesto si hay ganadores, habrá premios!
 
Invitamos también a padres a ser voluntarios como consejeros para juntarse con los participantes una vez a la semana con un total de 4 juntas.  Unos cuantos minutos por niño para revisar su diario durante su almuerzo para ver como van y/o ayudarles si tienen dudas.    Hágannos saber al marcar la parte baja de la forma de Intento de Invento junto con su información para comunicarnos con ustedes.   
 
Animen por favor a su hijo a participar promocionando  las habilidades de solución de problemas y  pensamiento creativo.  Nos encantaría ver crecer su creatividad  junto con la confianza en si mismos.

It’s time to Invent!

Dear Parents,

We are gearing up for our 3rd Annual Invention Convention!  The past years were a success and we want to make sure more students participate and get another shot at inventing.

Invention convention is an event that gives students an opportunity to invent a solution to a problem that has bugged them, or improve upon inventions that already exist.

All students from 1st grade to 5th grade are encouraged to join in this event.

This event will reinforce science, literacy and math skills, foster curiosity and most of all provide an opportunity to have fun while learning.

We sent the Intent to Invent form home on Dec 4th.  If you need another flyer, they are available in the front office or by visiting our PTA website. Once we receive the Intent to Invent form, your child will receive a packet that includes the Rules and Guidelines.  Information in the packet will also be available on the Reidy Creek PTA website – http://www.reidycreekpta.org

Inventions will be judged on Feb 24th and 25th to select winners from each grade level.  And of course if there are winners, there will be prizes!

We also need parents willing to volunteer as advisors to meet with inventors once a week for a total of 4 meetings.  You will meet for a few minutes per student to check their journal, during their lunch break, to see where they are and/or assist them if they have any questions.  Please let us know if you are interested by checking the bottom portion of the Intent to Invent form, and including your contact information.

Please encourage your child to participate to promote problem solving and creative thinking skills.  We would love to see their creativity grow as well as their self confidence.
