Mrs. Steinbeck’s Weekly Review

This will be another short post due to lack of photos. But, naturally we had a pretty good week in Ms. Hahn’s class.

P.E. has shifted from frisbee golf to lacrosse. Just in time too, because they can at least practice lacrosse skills inside with the colder weather.

Phenology was nice this week. The fall season is quickly morphing into winter so there are a lot of changes to record this time of year.

The kids have been working on a website called Digital Passport. This site helps teach them how to safely and effectively traverse the web. They did a lesson on how to do effective Google searches, and one on cyberbullying. Most lessons start with a video and then there are games to play that reinforce what the video talked about.

That is all the pictures that I took this week. The kids have been working hard on their explorer research and Google slide show. They will be presenting their work to other students this week. Fourth graders have also been working on an opinion essay in writing. We discussed adding a “hook” to get the reader to want to keep reading. In math we have moved to fractions. We’ve been using egg cartons to show how 4/12 is the same as 1/3 is the same as 2/6. Ask them to show you at home.

Well, that is all I have for this week. Next week will be fun with our Halloween parade and party. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
