Last week we studied the scientific method. Many of the students didn't do well on the test. In order to make sure that no child is left behind, we took another approach to the material. We made an instructional comic. This was a great reinforcement for those who did well and a multi- sensory approach for those who didn't.

Le'ts find out. Safety first!
We also practiced inquiry in the classroom. I can't wait to display the work we did!
This Week the 6th and 7th grade are learning about Matter. Do you know the difference between Mass and Weight? You child can. Ask them.
8th grade is leaning about Cell Theory. We will be collecting samples and examining plant cells under microscopes.
Both classes are learning to organize ideas and text by outlining their text. This will teach them to recognize the patterns and identify main ideas in the text and reference it more efficiently. Check their homework and tell me what you think.
Look out for an e-mail about the Science Fair.
Remember to check Engrade. Most are doing great... some need some help. Help me keep your children on track.
