We started Unit Three Theme Test today. With several glitches, we will continue tomorrow. This theme test is modeled with the students. They can see what it looks like on line and how the format is. For Unit Four, they will be responsible for completing it alone, that includes reading the passage. It will be challenging for some students, but hopefully with modeling three of the units, they will have success!
Please do send snow pants and boots to school. Today was absolutely beautiful and the snow was fun for them to play in. However, without the proper gear, they get cold and wet. Thank you!
This afternoon, we enjoyed exploring how to make a drum. They generated a list of possible materials and went to town! After exploring what worked best for their hollow object, we came back together to talk about our observations. How different materials made the tone sound. They explored how different shapes also produced different vibrations. They did really well with enthusiasm and using vocabulary.
*****WE HAVE 26 STUDENTS IN THE CLASS***** Please send at least 25 cards/items to pass out. If you run short, your own child will not get one, that is why 25 is ok. BUT 26 IS THE MAGIC NUMBER for the Valentine's Day Cards/treats.
Also, please have them bring their mailbox/bag on Wednesday for our day of friendship!
Enjoy the night. - Mrs. Fromm
