The Juliano Journal
Week of October 5-9
Our third grade classes were able to attend this tour at no cost thanks to the city of Crystal Lake who monetarily supports this society. We are so thankful!
I sent blue conference forms home today for those students who do not have siblings at Woods Creek. Please return this form to school by Friday, October 16, indicating whether the assigned day and time will work for you. Thanks!
Have a great three-day weekend! Go Cubs!
This unit will culminate next week with an assessment on Thursday. Please look for a study guide to come home on Tuesday that will help you and your child prepare for the test.
We read some poetry together this week and talked about the components that make up certain types of poems. They were introduced to terms such as stanza, lines and rhyming words. They had so much fun! After reading some poetry, students composed their own acrostic poems about Halloween!
This week we continued our study of sound. We discussed the difference between pitch and volume, and the students completed activities that helped them see that fast vibrations produce high-pitched sounds, and slow vibrations produce low-pitched sounds. The students also discovered that a long object has a low pitch and vibrates slowly, and a short object has a high pitch and vibrates quickly. The students were such great scientists as they worked together to make the discoveries!
We will continue with our sound unit next week.
