First of all, I apologize for not writing last week. There was a lot of important news, and I did not get it out on time. Thank you for your understanding and I will get out important news to you in the future.
With that said, this was an exciting week! We celebrated our hard work with a PBL gathering on Thursday night. Thanks to all the families that helped out and participated! I enjoyed discussing water and the PBL process with you all. For those who weren't able to make it, I will work to make sure your student's project is visible on SeeSaw (it will most likely be next week :) ).
SeeSaw: I spoke with some families last night that didn't have access to SeeSaw. SeeSaw is a new program for students, families and teachers to share and discuss work, learning and choice time creations.
Your child will have his or her own learning journal, and you can get notified when your child adds new items. It's completely private -- only you can see your child's journal outside of class. Click on https://app.seesaw.me/s/011-355-975 to sign up -- it takes just 30 seconds. Once you sign up, you can download the Seesaw Parent app for iPhone or Android, or access your child's journal on the web. Thanks!
I have also sent home the QR code for you to use on your phones. Look for them today!
Quick update on the week:
Reading and writing: Water PBL! Next week we will begin Powerful Fiction in writing and book club conversations in reading.
Math: Measurement - Metric - We have so far investigated measurement with non-standard units (finger, hand, books, etc) and centimeter and meters. Next, we will look into customary measurement, comparing measurements, and plotting data from items we have measured.
Science: We will start our Liquids Kit next week. Look for more on this next week.
