Exploring coding in first grade to work on critical thinking skills.
Mrs. Wray’s 3rd Grade Class has been learning about heat and light in science this year. We have studied how temperature differs in direct sunlight versus in the shade. We studied how darker colors absorb more heat than lighter colors. This week we are studying how light affects plant growth. We will be seeing which plants grow faster, the ones that sit in direct sunlight, or the plants that don’t receive any sunlight. We can’t wait to discover the answer to our experiment! Stay tuned…
In PE so far this year Mrs. Marshalls (aka Mrs. Marshmallow’s) classes have hit the ground running, literally! It’s been so exciting being back to school and seeing the kids moving, playing and having fun in class. Its awesome getting kids excited about exercise, health and fun. All of the kids have done several fun activities, various tag games, drums alive and this week they’re conquering circuit training and learning about various movements to work different muscle groups.
In kindergarten we have been practicing where the numbers are on the computer keyboard, how to log onto and navigate imagine learning. In grades 1 - 3 we have been practicing mouse control, learning the basic computer skills and keyboard layout. In grades 4-6 we have been learning how to change font appearance, size and color.
Second graders at Meadow Brook are enjoying their year so far! We are busy learning but first, we gotta take a selfie!!
Fifth Grade has dived into reading! We began the year with a book tasting experience. Students learned about all of the different genres and were excited to taste each book and write about them. Book tasting is a great way for students to have an opportunity to see which books spark their interests. Students can’t wait to begin their chapter books after this experience!
Once, my class and I were correcting morning work with our teacher Miss Christensen until someone walked in the room. Miss Christensen introduced her, “This is Mrs. Luther, she is our guest speaker today.” I knew we were going to have fun because Mrs. Luther looked so sweet.
