5H Off and Running
Project Based Learning
The students are beginning a new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)project. I have asked the students to bring in a roll of clear tape. If you have clear tape at home that you can part with, please send it in with your child. If each student has a roll that will allow each individual to participate seamlessly within the groups. Also, I'm looking for empty pizza boxes, paper towel and toilet paper rolls.
I was very happy with the students Theme 3 projects, "Go with the Flow". Theme 4 will be their last project of the year, it's called "Dare to be Great". The students will focus on famous inventors and inventions. They will choose an invention that has made an impact on society, then they will research that invention and create a Wix. I will teach them how to use Wix at school. This project should be worked on both at home and school.
5H Blog and more!
Now that I am back to school, I will be updating our class blog more often. If you are wondering what great things we are doing at school check it out. We are almost paperless in the classroom, projects are mostly done on the ipads, during STEM/PBL, or in the computer lab. I also incorporate google drive into many class assignments.
Don't forget to have your child write a brief reflection in their Friday folder, reflection is key.
