What a great, and busy, week we had! In science lab we made models of the water cycle in soda bottles. We practiced our rounding skills and used them to estimate answers in word problems. We reviewed and tested character in Language arts. We studied taking care of our teeth, vision, hearing, and being a good health consumer, in Health/Reading. We began informational writing on an extreme/weather event. We ended the week celebrating states of matter with our book buddies. Ask your child if they can tell you which components of a root beer float represent each state of matter:liquid, solid, and gas. Next week there will be a test on the physical features of the United States. Have your child demonstrate their knowledge to you using their Social Studies Notebook. Students will be tested on all of the place value concepts, rounding, and estimating. On Friday, September 9, we will have an in-house field trip: The Incredible Journey, to support our science unit on the water cycle. Mrs. Sattelmeier and Mrs. Stewart hope you all have a safe and relaxing long week-end with your families!
