Miss Macias's Minions
Week of November 4, 2013
What are we learning in Ms. Macias's class?
In Science we are wrapping up our energy unit. We have learned the different forms of energy, forces, and how electricity flows. Your children created simple circuits, tested conductors and insulators, and even created an electromagnetic field! We will continue electricity next week and will also be discussing Science Fair and reviewing the scientific method. Keep an eye out for the science fair consent form, timeline, and handbook! They will be coming home on Wednesday!
In Social Studies, we will continue working on our Texas Native American unit. Your child has been spending long hours researching his/her tribe! Our social studies journals are just about done, and we are getting ready to move onto our Power Point presentations!
In SEL (Social Emotional Learning) we will be discussing how to respect similarities and differences.
*Start thinking about possible science fair topics (Remember it must be an experiment!)
* Continue to check homework and sign planners daily!
* Return Scholastic Book Forms if you are interested in purchasing books for your child!
