Science with Mrs. Peery

This week in Science...

we will continue working on Lego Robotics. We will be diving into more advanced programming and building a different robot called: TaskBot. This next build will allow the robot to be more maneuverable for the next project: RoboArt!

How you can help your child this week at home:

1. Help your child by reviewing the Lego Commands and how to write a (5) box program. Both study sheets will be in their Science Binders. Quiz on Weds. 5/18

Language Arts

This week we will continue reading our whole class novel, "Walk Two Moons" and practice applying our active reading strategies. Students will work on creating their own discussion questions from the book and having discussions in small groups. Students will work on analyzing their short stories and chunking them up into 5 sections of events, they will plan out how they will retell it to the class.

Effective Study Tips

  1. Create a designated study space: Designate a space in your home that is well lit and away from distractions. Have pencils, paper and post-it notes readily available in the study area.
  2. Avoid distractions: Teach your student how to put their computer away and turn off all other devices that may serve as a form of distraction while they’re studying. Multi-tasking also takes away from learning, so encourage your child to focus on a single subject for a sustained period of time before moving onto another subject.
  3. Avoid cramming for tests: Have your learner bring home their binders or folders daily to study a little bit of each subject nightly. This is proven to help with long-term retention of information. Help your student structure a study schedule that will allow them to space out their practice of each subject- a little a 10 minutes of practice a day can help!
  4. Practice for tests: Simply reviewing content before a test isn’t necessarily the best method to ensure your child is prepared for an upcoming test. Instead, encourage them to try more interactive approaches, like completing practice tests or using flash cards. Asking your child review questions and having them provide short essay-style explanations aloud can also be a great strategy to make sure they truly understand the material.
  5. Ask for help: Perhaps your student is struggling with understanding a specific lesson in a particular subject or doesn’t quite understand the night’s homework assignment. When this is the case (and it happens to everyone at some point or another) asking for help is key. Teach your student how to bring up challenges early with a teacher and ask for help—and don’t be afraid to bring up concerns with their teacher yourself either. Teaching your child how to build effective working relationships with other students and asking their peers for help is another important lesson in asking for, receiving, and offering support.
  6. Good nutrition and rest: Ensure that your child has healthy sleeping and eating habits in order to maximize their focus.
