THE GREAT PARKCREST EGG DROP
This is a fun event for families. Please make sure that your child's first and last name appear on the contraption as well as the teacher's name. Raw eggs are provided by PAC!
We are continuing our novel study. Also, the kids are learning about antonyms (opposites), prefixes and quotation marks. Judging by the success of the quotation marks assignment, we will be spending more time learning the finer points.
We are now working in our second volume of Jump Math. Both grades are learning about fractions. In order to understand them, the kids will be working with manipulatives. I am teaching them the relationship between fractions, division and multiplication.
We are continuing to learn about body systems by learning facts and performing hands on experiments.
PLEASE NOTE: THE KIDS ARE NOT TO BE WEARING SANDALS TO SCHOOL. WE TAKE SPONTANEOUS RUNS THROUGHOUT THE DAY. OPEN FOOTWEAR IS DANGEROUS. IT'S FINE FOR THE BEACH AND CASUAL WEAR BUT NOT FOR SCHOOL. Thanks for providing runners.
