Get your Lifeboat!

Lifeboats!

Students began designing and engineering their own lifeboats out of paper cups this week during science. Students collaborated to create different size boats that would be able to hold passengers (or pennies). These scientists learned new words like capacity and variables. Ask your child what these words mean!

Character Motivation

This week in Reading we started our Book Clubs! Our readers are excited to use their analytical thinking skills to discuss certain aspects of their shared book. Today we dove into our reading to learn more about the characters who appear at the beginning of the book. We will dissect these characters and think more deeply about what motivates them.

 

 

Movement

On Tuesdays we have Movement! This week we played SPUD with the 4th Graders. This game involves two balls that are thrown into the air while the rest of the athletes scatter, trying to escape the students with the balls. This was a great game to get us outside and run in the sun after a long week of being cooped up. Even the turtles got some exercise this week!
