Classroom Update 1/05

Happy 2015!  It was a very exciting day back in the classroom! I was glad to see all the students and hear about their adventures over break.
Today we talked in science about how we will spend the next few science lessons being communications engineers! The students need to help some kid solve their problem of being able to talk whenever they’d like- but they don’t have cellphones! Today we review what happened before break when we put a tuning fork in water after striking it against the table. Today the students struck a tuning fork and held it against a ping pong ball. Ask them about what happened…
In writing, we are going to focus on opinion writing during the month of January! We’ll be working on writing good supports for our opinions. Today the student wrote whether they would like to vote for LaRue or Bugwort (characters from a book we read) in an election.
