Students in Room 113 work together to create a system to roll marbles in our Balance and Motion science unit.
The look of sheer joy and excitement as Conrad, Logan, and Keara got their marble to roll in a spiral and under the desk during a science experiment.
Crazy Hair Day
We had some seriously crazy 'do's going on!
In addition to practicing using the writing process and finding our inner writer's voice, your kiddos have also gone back to basics with practicing their writing conventions. I am still finding mixed up lower case b's and d's, lowercase i's in the word "I", forgetting to capitalize the first letter in a sentence, and forgetting punctuation marks at the end of sentences. Please help model and encourage these important conventions at home as well!
Your children's writing has improved by leaps and bounds this year. I am excited to send home their writing pieces for you to read at the end of the year. Don't forget to help support your child by asking them to continue to write during the summer!
We have read aloud several fantastic books this year, and our last read aloud books is one of my all time favorites: Charlotte's Web. As we near the end of the book this month, we will celebrate by having a Charlotte's Web Day, and all of our learning that day will be centered around the novel. I can't wait!!
Please remember to help your child get ahead of the game this summer by practicing basic math facts with them!
