Continent Studies - ANTARCTICA
This week, we took our Unit 2 Assessment. We began Unit 3 studying how animals and humans are unique. Please check out Wonders online. Your student can log into their account and read the stories we are reading in class, as well as complete activities relating to what we are learning about in spelling and grammar.
Please have your child read at home as much as possible. Even 20 minutes per night will make a big difference in increasing their fluency and comprehension. Thank you for your support!
I would like to do a group Genius Hour project that is a service project. For example, what is a need in our community? What is something we can do to help bring awareness or change to? For example, this first round a student wanted to encourage others to donate their hair to an organization that makes wigs for children. Please discuss this with your child over the weekend. We will finish brainstorming on Monday and pick our topic.
Here is what we came up with so far... While this is a great list, remember we are trying to think of topics we can research, raise awareness, etc.
· Encourage people to recycle
· Save cans, collect money to donate
· Clean up the environment
· Teach people to not litter
· Help endangered animals
· Help elderly people
· Encourage others to help people in need
· Donate food to people
· Donate hair to organizations that make wigs
· Salvation army
· Give puppies a home – Animal Shelter
· Raise awareness for Heart Defects
· Raise awareness to get early vision screenings
