This morning, we covered the area of triangles, circles, and odd shapes that can be split into quadrilaterals. We practiced with each type and took notes. Students also began assembling their mosaics. We will be expecting the mosaics to be completed by Monday morning.
For social studies, students were expected to have their maps sketched. We are working on getting poster boards for the students to use for their maps to complete on a larger scale.
In science, we went over the expectation for the animal in their project. They will be creating a fictitious animal that could survive in the biome they were assigned earlier. The animal will be imaginary, but the adaptations will actually exist in nature.
Students worked on finalizing their emails today. We encourage parents to check them to make sure they make sense and fit who they are trying to contact.
Students wrote poems in groups today. They took turns writing lines until the poem was completed. The topic of the poem was “Listening”, and then they shared them with the class.
As always, if students use their time wisely in class, they should have little to nothing to take home. However, this is not the case for many students. We encourage you to go through their assignment with them. We have started writing in agendas at the end of the day. Students should have the assignments and due dates written in their agendas. Each student was given an agenda at the beginning of the school year. If they have lost it, then they need to figure out how to keep track of the assignments in class. A notebook will work just as well if kept organized.
Finally, we would like to leave you with a quote today from best-selling author, Stephen R. Covey, “People don’t listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
IN THIS CLASS, IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW, IT IS ABOUT WHAT WE DO WITH WHAT WE KNOW!
