Coming up in Humanities both classes will present their immigrant group research. Students will create a digital book, documentary or historic minute to demonstrate their understanding. We will finish the read aloud of, “The Wild Robot Escapes” and start our final novel study. For the final novel study each student will read a book of their choosing and demonstrate their understanding through a ABC project. Book proposals will be submitted Tuesday.
5.3’s Week 5.3 had a great time in Fort Steele. Although the weather didn’t cooperate fully, students took advantage of every experience and were just awesome for the entire trip. A BIG shoutout to our parent volunteers. They were up at the crack of dawn each day and ended the day with a rousing campfire with Mr. Sweet. To view photos of our experience, check this link. In Humanities, the students worked on researching their immigrant groups and enjoyed our “Wild Robot Escapes,” read aloud. When Mrs. Stevenson returned we began putting our research into a book, historic minute or documentary. We also read a lot more of Roz’s adventure. In Math, students completed a pattern check-in and were successfully able to demonstrate an ability to create an expression to explain the pattern rule. We also began to look at balancing equations using algebra. In Science, we explored surface tension by seeing how many drops of water fit on a penny.
5.4’s Week The beginning of the week was spent at Fort Steele. We had a great trip and enjoyed some wonderful weather while we learned about life in the early 20th century. Our adventures were chronicled on twitter and can be viewed by clicking this link . When we returned to school we reflected on our time at camp and read some “Wild Robot Escapes”. Students spent most of their day with Mrs. Piper and worked on math and science. In Math, we reviewed patterns and how to determine an expression from a t-chart and visual. There will be a pattern check-in on Tuesday. In Science, we explored surface tension by seeing how many drops of water fit on a penny.
