This week we had a lot of Monday morning excitement with the Super Bowl Sunday night. This week we practiced division with the Stamp Game and multiplication with Rainbow Factoring and the Flat Golden Bead Frame. We found the relationship between fractions and the months of the year. Our students enjoyed a human body experiment that demonstrated how the small intestines further breaks down food. We also began preparing for the Science Fair!
A Peek into Next Week
Next week we are excited to continue our Science Fair work. We will be traveling to the library Monday to collect books. Please make sure your child is dressed for a 15-20 minute walk there and back! Lower Elementary students will make pictographs, discuss the origins of the days of the week, continue studying the Pythagorean Theorem, and begin our Africa Continent Study. Upper Elementary students will review Early Humans Vocabulary, learn about Portmanteaus, and begin the study of viruses!
