Week of September 22
In reading this week, I allowed the kids to take the leadership roles in conducting a literature circle. They have proved that they are ready to tackle a lit. circle on their own now! It is very exciting to see their hard work and determination paying off, as we finish our book, The One and Only Ivan.
They are doing fabulous and I am super excited to see their continued growth!
The students used iPads to create great sentences containing a subject and predicate.
They had to scan QR codes to receive either just a subject or just a predicate.
My students then had to create wonderful sentences using the subject or predicate given from the QR code!
In Science this week we finished our Unit on Communicating Scientifically. The students researched a type of technology (computers, phones, televisions and ways to listen to music) throughout the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s. The kids were very fascinated with how technology has changed over the decades. We also talked about how variables in experiments can remain constant or vary. The students discovered these two concepts with a fun experiment using pennies and different liquids. Next week, we start a new unit on Plants.
The kids are really enjoying the different activities that Math/Science teachers have created. I love teaching your kids and seeing how excited they get when we do different things. We will continue to have an amazing year!
CML - Continental Math League
With that being said, it is added to the homework to expand their thinking. If you are unable to get to these 2 or 3 CML questions, your child will not be reprimanded. The main focus of the homework is to practice what is learned in class and the math fact focus for the week.
