A Summary of Our Week

🌎☀️🍃This week we re-explored the continents by viewing National Geographic Destination World videos for each continent.  After reminding ourselves of all we have to be grateful for, we began to review and think more about our 6-step social problem solving process.💗

👊🏻You completed the Forces and Motion checkpoint at the conclusion of our investigation of Invisible Forces.  Kids who listened to most of  the books and viewed most of the videos did well.  Thanks to those who used their own time to complete the bridge projects.  Projects do take extra time.🙌🏼🎢

Kami Export – Finding-Shapes-In-Bridges-1  5.19 LM You continued to name and label polygons and quadrilaterals.  You completed a checkpoint to assess your understanding of aspect of geography.  Some of you were able to experiment with shape and wind resistance by completing the Polygon Parachute challenge.

🇺🇸🥳We began reading about the regions of the United States and are looking forward to a mini-research project about a favorite state.

📚Our mystery book clubs are winding down and some new clubs are starting.  So far five kids have chosen new books to read.  If you think you’d like to join a club for the last weeks of school, and a couple beyond please leave your choices in a comment on the May 22nd Book Club Blog Post.📖

✏️You’ve been writing so many different pieces of writing ~ giving colors voice, creating original mysteries, teaching other about games: either directions or cheats, writing science fiction, creating dialogue, personal narrative and interacting with siblings through writing.📝

It is pretty amazing to look back on our blog and see all you’ve done in the last 11 weeks.  You are rock stars.🤩🎸🥁  I mean that sincerely.  No 8 and 9 year-olds have done more than you have.  I am proud of you!

💗👊🏻😀 Mrs. Eaves
