We practiced for over 2 weeks. We talked about what we needed to do while we were performing. For example, we don't want to hold our script in front of our face or our grandparents won't be able to see or hear us. Also, we need to speak loud and clear and use expression in our voice.
The students were so excited to perform. On Friday, October 6th, they were finally able to show off all their hard work. They did a phenomenal job! They worked hard, practiced, and were ready. Don't worry about not being able to see this performance; we will be performing for a special parents' presentation the week before Thanksgiving.
Math Module 3: Understanding Place Value
I am so proud at how hard they have worked during this first month. We will be testing over Module 3 this week. Next week we will begin our new math module, measurement.
Mystery Science: If you Floated Down a River, Where Would You End Up?
Last week we began our unit about how water shapes the earth’s surface. Our first lesson was called, “If you floated down a river, where would you end up?” We learned how water flows from high to low, and how many rivers start up in mountains or hilly areas, and ultimately flow out towards the sea.
You can encourage your child’s curiosity at home! If you know where your nearest stream or creek is, plan a trip to go visit it! If you’re not sure, look on a map. Once you get there, ask your child if they can figure out which direction it's flowing. Use a map to see if you can figure out where the water's headed.
