What's Happening In Room 6?
- Light travels in straight lines.
- Light is energy.
- Light cannot pass through opaque objects.
We started to discuss the words opaque, translucent, and transparent. We tested different types of objects to learn about these words. This week, we will do an experiment with our shadows outside. Hopefully we will have a nice sunny day that will allow us to track our shadows over the course of day!
Thank you for helping your child reach his/her reading goal for the month of November. Those students who reached their reading goal received an invitation for our first grade pajama party. We will be doing another celebration in early January to celebrate those students who reached their December reading goals.
We are focusing on four different phonics skills this week. We are learning about magic "e", long a, soft c and soft g. We sang a poem to help us learn when to use soft c and soft g. Our spelling test will be on Wednesday.
