January 7, 2020
I hope everyone had a nice vacation and a happy new year!
In Writing, we’re finishing up our DARE essays. These are being done in class and independently. It is due Friday, January 10th. TWO students will be chosen by the DARE officers and they will read their essay at the DARE graduation. The DARE poster is to be completed at home. Students must create a poster based on any topic they learned in DARE. (ie. anti-bullying/cyberbullying, drug free message, stress relief, etc) DUE THURSDAY, JANUARY 23RD! Please be on the lookout for the official graduation date. We’re waiting to hear back from the officers, we’re thinking end of January or beginning of February. I will let you know ASAP.
Next week, we will be beginning a report on a country of choice. Students will complete a 5-paragraph essay based on their research. Then students will create a presentation to advertise their country. They can choose to create a brochure, Google Slides presentation or short video. Students will highlight culture, geography and attractions.
In Social Studies, we’re continuing our unit on Ancient Egypt. We used Nearpod to learn information about Egypt’s geography, culture and achievements. We will be making paper mache masks and creating technology videos to show what we have learned. Students have a graphic organizer which will help guide them in making their video.
In Science, we’re learning about our Solar System. We have researched the inner and outer planets and their relationship between the sun and stars. Ask your child to sing the planet song!! It’s been ringing in my head!
