Work Coming Home

Sorry for the delay, but I finally sent home the social studies tests from a few weeks ago.  I also sent home a couple of graphing assessments.  Please take a moment to talk to your children about how they did and where they made mistakes.  If a retest is desired please let me know.

Our garden

We have been graphing the growth of plants and measuring liquids (as we mix fertilizer and water). Things are starting to really grow with several new sprouts coming through!

Our garden

So we have finally built our garden! We used measurement skills to build it and today we found the area, perimeter and volume of each of the growing areas! If anyone has a real green thumb and wants to help with our garden please feel free to let me know! (I certainly don’t!)

Social Studies

We have spent the past week preparing for our social studies test tomorrow. Today we focused on “how” to study and tried to recognize what type of learner we are and study accordingly. Some great use of a wide variety of strategies! If you can- take some time to talk to your children about “how” you think they best remember information.
