Mrs. Terry's Class News!
Our Week Ahead
We are having a blast already this week! Today we experimented with how water can show that air takes up space. This is a tricky concept, but we made a start. The homemade water fountain ended science in a fit of giggles. We will review tomorrow a bit, but it might make a fun conversation topic around the dinner table.
Below are important pieces of information and date changes.
Fieldtrip Revision and Updates
- Air Toys in - house fieldtrip is Wednesday afternoon
- Salmon Release fieldtrip to support 4th grade is next Tuesday at 10:50
- Our fieldtrip to Mercer Slough is on Tuesday 4/12 from 10-1
Science Fair Due
- Science fair project sign ups are due. If you want to participate in this year's science fair please find the form in your Friday folder and return ASAP! This is a fun event for all grades and a great chance for your scientist to show off their skills. Might I suggest a trip to Steve Spangler's Sick Science? It is my favorite site for Science Fair ideas.
- I am available over the next few weeks for optional and informal conferences. I would love to meet with you to go over your child's progress. Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and we will find a convenient time.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Questions Guiding Our Learning This Week
Science: How can water be used to show that air takes up space? How can air be used to propel objects?
Math: Can I find the unknown number in an equation? Can I make both sides of the equal sign balanced? Can I add three numbers together accurately?
Writing: How can I add details to my character and setting? Can I incorporate dialogue?
