Our Goals

Language Arts

I can use the research and writing strategies I've learned and apply it to our project . I can use possessive nouns in a sentence.


Math

I can add and subtract measurements to make holiday items from countries around the world. I can collaborate as a team to accomplish a goal.


Science

I can identify and label ecosystems from around the world. I can determine what biomes are in the country I am reporting about for the project.


Social Studies

I read fact from history and connect them to present day events. I can identify longitude and latitude lines.

Project Updates

The students are working on designing items from around the world. This week our focus is on China. The students are making Chinese Dragons. They are also making Germany Doll ornaments. The project product for this three weeks is a Traveling Brochure. Your child had picked a country he/she is researching. The brochure is on their Google drive . It is a Lucid Press brochure.

Holiday Tradition Project

Students should be working on their homework project. I handed out the paper again today just in case they forgot. Students will be presenting the end of this week. Remember item can not be baked at home for the class to eat. If you are really motivated and would like to share a recipe for the students to make here in class, that will be fine, just contact me tomorrow to schedule a time.

If you have a file to upload go to this Itslearning assignment link and add the file or upload the video. Your child should know their login or just look below and you will see how to login. You can also email me the file.

Logging into Students Accounts

If you would like to see all the hard work your child does at school you can login to their Google account or their Itslearning account from home. Considering winter is just around the corner this is very important to learn how to get around the Google world. Plus this is a great way to help your child. I'm sure they would love to share what they are learning!

Here is the pattern
