Well another week has come and gone. Each day we are all getting used to our routines and expectations our of school day.
This week we started our new music rotations. About ten students are away at band or Funky Monkeys while twenty are still in class working diligently on their math. This has given me more time to spend with our Math 3 students as they learn how to read the lessons, practice the problems, and then do a daily lesson. Next week we will have a couple more volunteers begin and that will help even more.
We also met our buddies from Mrs. Wold’s class this week. We helped them with their community project. They had to name four different communities that they were apart of. We enjoyed our time together and look forward to next Tuesday afternoon!
During writing and reading this week we have been discussing Native American legends. We read a couple different legends. Our main focus has been on the legend of the Bridge of the Gods. As with many stories that has been passed down over the years, there tend to be more than one different version. Our legend was written by Ella Clark who was a US Forest Service employee in the 1950s. After reading her retelling, we wrote down the events that happened in order. We are now working with a partner to write our own version of the legend keeping the same characters and order of events. Some partners are already working on their final draft and will soon be sharing their books with their buddies from Mrs. Wold’s class.
We continue our learn about energy and matter in science. This week we looked about how energy can be converted from one form to another.
Looking forward to next week,
