Earlier this week, we were busy bees collecting, organizing, and arranging the boxes in the gym for pick-up. The elementary school filled 16 boxes of Thanksgiving supplies and our class brought in 57 cans of green beans! Surely, they will help so many of the less fortunate in our community. On Tuesday, we had our school prayer service. I have a new post on the website that shows recent pictures and you can find some from this week there.
We've been working hard on our research projects. Our research started with note-taking, then progressed to outlines, to drafts, (some had 2nd drafts), and finally good copies and cover pages. Most students are finished or nearly finished so these should be done and ready for sharing with the class. I'm looking forward to hearing about so many cool topics. We have a wide range: Dove chocolate, galaxies, bobcats, the brain, Joan of Ark, sea turtles, daredevils, cookies, and much more!
We are also starting to learn about heredity in Science. Students received an assignment on Thursday to ask Moms and Dads 5 questions to gather data. This should be ready for a project we'll be working on Monday and Tuesday.
I've been reminding the students that this week brought the 1st trimester to a close. Report cards are scheduled to go home to parents Tuesday, December 6. Everyone receives a print copy of this. Grades can be checked anytime at the portal. We start fresh next week!
Monday: Good copy & cover page of research essay due
Science data due
Tuesday: Early dismissal 11:30
