This was a short week in the classroom. On Monday and Tuesday students worked on researching their historic group in humanities. In math, they continued working with patterns and in science they did an experiment with mystery powders. In health, we learned about hearing loss and impairments and how background noise and talking in the classroom impact learning. Wednesday we departed for camp and will be excited to share camp stories upon our return. The bus is scheduled to arrive Saturday evening between 5:00 and 5:30. You can check twitter for arrival time updates. Clicking the link will show Erin’s most current tweets. @ErinCouillard
The week in the classroom was longer for 5.4. Students did research in Humanities and patterns in Math. They did a mystery powders experiment in science. Students completed a science check in to assess their understanding of physical changes and chemical reactions. We also read the first 39 chapters of “The Wild Robot Escapes.” In health, we learned about hearing loss and impairments and how background noise and talking in the classroom impact learning. We also finished our “friend wanted ads”.
We are excited to leave for camp tomorrow. Students don’t need to arrive any earlier than 7:00 AM. The bus departs at 7:30. Please remember to pack sunscreen and a refillable water bottle. Follow @GailStevenson on twitter for camp updates and return time updates on Tuesday.
