The next week and a half will be filled with some fun holiday activities, including reading lots of gingerbread stories as well as some dress up days that students can participate in. The calendar with the dress up days went home on Thursday. Information about the class holiday party went home on Thursday as well. It is nice to see that so many people have already signed up to donate or bring in items! The 3 volunteer spots to help set up for the party filled up quickly, but if you are interested in coming to volunteer during the party, then please let Brooke McQuilken (firstname.lastname@example.org) or I know and we can plan accordingly. The party will run approximately from 1:10-2:10. If you do plan to come to the party, please make sure no siblings attend. Below is a link for the Holiday party sign up if you need it:
Thank you in advance for your support in making sure our party is a success! Please make sure all donations are turned in by this Friday!
We have been working on 2 step word problems and will make a holiday word problem book this week to practice solving the problems with different math strategies we have learned this year. Students have been measuring items in centimeters, meters, inches, and feet, and this week we will work more on comparing their measurements, as well as putting their measurements on a line plot.
This week in the science lab, students reviewed heat energy by making pancakes and saw how a liquid can be changed into a solid when you add heat energy. It was a yummy experiment that was enjoyed by all! Students also participated in other heat and sound energy experiments to see how it made matter change.
