Our class is beginning its final project on Living Things. Students are tasked with creating a diorama of an animal habitat. They will do all of the research and construction at school, but we are in need of extra shoe boxes! If you have any extra please send them in, and our class will be very grateful.
Here is how your student will be evaluated for the project:
I had a few students forget to take home their folders today, therefore, I have uploaded copies of tonight’s math homework. The answers can be turned in on a separate sheet of paper. Email or message me on ClassDojo if you have any questions or concerns. Have a great night!
Below is a link to a PDF, if you would prefer to download and print out a copy for your student.
We used buildyourwildself to help us learn about structural adaptations in class. Your student is more than welcome to continue using the website at home.
We also had a Phobetron pithecium (Hag Moth) visit our classroom yesterday. It dropped from the ceiling and landed on an unsuspecting student. We carefully had it crawl on to a pen and then in to a seal container. Where it promptly changed to it’s pupa stage. We will keep it in class to see the Hag Moth emerge!
**Never should students seek out caterpillars or any other insect to interact with. Many insects, like the hag moth larvae (Monkey Slug), look interesting but might be harmful to the touch. This is a good time to reiterate with this same sentiment at home. ***
Today we had an assembly, where we learned about our school fundraiser and new school initiatives. The fundraiser forms are coming home today with your students.
The school initiative focused on optimism. It is our word of the month. If a student is showing optimism they can be recognized, by teachers or staff, and receive a “shout out” on our school bulletin board!
Spelling tests also came home today. Remember,they can be initialed and sent back with your student to receive a ClassDojo point.
Have a wonderful weekend, and as always let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
