Happy Halloween!

Today was an exciting day. We got to visit with our book buddies. We graphed a gross snack, did a word search, and read books with our third grade friends.

The students "dressed" me up for Halloween.

We did a STEM project. We created critter catchers to see what design would hold the most critters.

Thank you and Magnets

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your very busy schedules to discuss your child's progress during conference week. The students did a great job sharing their leadership notebooks and data with you. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me or write a note in your child's GATOR book.

In the Science Lab this week we started to study magnets. The students were asked to use words like attract and repel. They learned that magnets have a North and South and that opposites attract. We also talked about what materials magnets are attracted to and can work through. We will continue to study magnets for the next few lessons.

Fluffy and Harry!

This has been a super exciting week for our class. We had a guest visitor on Monday. Fluffy the hamster came to class for the day. The students were so excited. She rolled around to see us all and we wrote stories about her!

We completed out first STEM project on Thursday. The students were asked to figure out a way to help Harry the bear see better around the room. We went through the engineering process. The students had a great time. Thank you so much for all of your supply donations. We can always use more empty paper towel rolls, if you will collect them for us.

Have a great  Fall Break!

Career Dress Up

The students looked adorable today dressed up as what they wanted to be when they grow up!

In the Science Lab we made wind vanes. The students learned how to find North and to read their wind vane to see which direction the wind was blowing from.

In the Light Bulb Lab we  practiced for the COGAT. Remember testing starts next Wednesday and goes until Friday. Make sure your child gets good sleep, eats breakfast, and arrives to school on time.

Have a great long weekend!

Partner Reading

This week we reached our goal of reading to ourselves for 20 minutes! I am so proud of the students and their focus. Since we were able to reach our goal, we moved on to learning a new part of Daily 5- Partner Reading. The students were allowed to choose a partner and sit EEK with them to read. They have really enjoy this. Next week we will learn how to respond to what we have read both independently and with our partner.

We got to visit the Science Lab this week were we reviewed safety rules and put together or eclipse booklet.

In the Learning Commons we got to go in the Star Lab with our 3rd grade buddies!

Thank you for having your child complete their homework and turn it in on time. Have a great weekend!
