Mrs. King and Ms. Craig's News
Week of September 19
What's Going on in Class?
In science, we are continuing our study of matter. Today we are measuring volume in graduated cyclinders. We will be learning more about magnetism, boiling point and melting point, thermal energy and electrical energy as the week goes on. Later in the week, students will create their own new matter invention!
The skill we are focusing on this week in reading is problem and solution. Students will have opportunities to find conflicts and solutions in text, current events, and even come up with their own examples. This skill is going to overlap with our social studies lesson for the week, as we learn about why people settle in certain areas. Students will analyze the reasons for the location of major cities in the United States. Students should continue to read and log their time in their yellow reading log. They are due the first week in October, and will need a parent's signature.
Last week, we worked on adding details to our writing. To practice using adjectives, students looked at different photographs and came up with corresponding descriptive words.
