This week, we will continue to produce three short videos centered around a Halloween theme -- Character's Dressed as Characters!
Our Helios Set quizzes will be this Thursday. Click for the spelling and vocabulary list and the word parts.
I have added a S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) page to my website - under "Science." I will rotate an engineer challenge into my homework. Students will choose one challenge from a list to do at home when assigned. They will do about 2 of these challenges per month. This assignment will be rotated with the Poem of the Week and Video Writing Prompt homework. Even though they might want to do several of these at once, please have your child choose one only when assigned. Please let me know how these challenges pan out. Take a picture or video if you can.
We will also be doing more S.T.E.A.M. challenges in the classroom, sometimes with our kindergarten buddies. We are going to be learning about and using the engineering design process for our challenges.
Please send your child to school with an empty (and clean) dozen egg carton this week or next.
We were scheduled to go on a field trip on November 6 to the Science Center and Natural History Museum, but it is being rescheduled because my class will open its doors to principals and teachers for the lab school visit that day. Ms. Aviv and I will take our classes sometime after the new year.
This week's homework:
- I'd Rather Read log and response.
- Math - problem solving tasks.
- Math - practice sheet.
- Spelling Menu - choose 2 activities.
- S.T.E.A.M. at home challenge - choose one from the menu. Complete the Think Like an Engineer sheet.
Have a great week,
