Thank you for letting me work with your students! I LOVE my job!
First Grade News
First graders have worked very hard on their Power Points covering a famous monument. They will complete those this week by recording their voice as they read each slide in the target language. These will be emailed home by Thanksgiving as each class completes their project. They've worked so hard and have done a fabulous job!
Second Grade News
Second graders have concluded a study on the three states of matter. They learned about solids, liquids and gases and conducted an experiment proving that the states of matter can be changed. We also learned about mixtures and solutions and conducted an experiment proving that the definitions the students came up with for these words were true. As we conduct experiments we are learning about the Scientific Method and filling out a form (using words such as hypothesis, conclusion, etc).
Third Grade News
Third graders spent several weeks reading a non-fiction text about severe weather. We learned how to highlight important information and then how to turn that highlighted information into notes. We then turned our notes into a Power Point presentation about a selected topic from the non-fiction passage. Your student will bring his/her Power Point presentations home on their flash drive so they can be saved. Please make sure those flash drives make it back to school.
