This week in STEM, students were challenged to create the TALLEST snowball (marshmallow) structure they could! The tallest was created by Connor and Makis and was 22 in tall!
A Request:
I am requesting 1 (or more) pictures of your child reading to be EMAILED to me. This can be a picture of them at home reading, from a vacation, while at a sibling's sports practice, in the car (please don't take the picture while driving!), outside, etc. With smartphones, this should be an easy enough picture to snap and email. Please try to have the pictures emailed to me ( by January 30 - they are for a February activity. Thank you! :)
What We Are Learning Next Week!
Reading: This week, we will begin learning about theme. While main idea is what a text is mostly about, theme is what the author wants the readers to learn from a fiction text.
Math: We have started Topic 6 - Finding Area - and students are doing great! We will tentatively have our topic 6 test on Tuesday, January 23.
Writing: This week we will begin our Adapted Fairy Tale Unit. To start off, students will study a variety of mentor texts of adapted fairy tales and determine what makes a fairy tale a fairy tale, and the different ways authors may choose to adapt or change them.
Science: We have begun our unit on Sound. Last week, we worked hard to differentiate and classify types of sounds based on their quality. This upcoming week we will look at how vibration produces sounds.
