Here is what we did today.
Math: Today we started by reviewing what we learned previously and doing a math check in. Next we started moving onto subtracting decimals. This is the same as subtracting regularly except it is extremely important to ensure that the decimal follows down. They all did very well!
Music: Please see Mr. Oliver's blog for more information.
Language: Today we started wonder week! This week we are exploring our curiosities! We started by watching a short video to engage our curiosities. We talked about what good questions are and what things we are curious about. Next we talked about what ethical and social justice issues are. We learned that ethical means "Is something right or wrong". An example of a social justice issue is pollution or poverty. Next we made questions with our partners based on a question. They were to think of questions based on the following points:
Does your question meet the following:
1.Is it an invitation to think?
2.Open ended-- there is no final or correct answer.
3.Makes you think about something in a way you never considered
4.Invites deep thinking and deep feelings—ask you to think ethically (what is right or wrong)
5.Leads to more good questions
They did so well! I was so impressed with the questions they were coming up with! Great work everyone!
Here is the video we watched:
Gym: Please see Mr. B's blog for more information.
UOI: Today we started working on our new unit! We first wrote down some things we knew about forces and motion. Next we watched a video to get us thinking about forces and motion:
We learned that a force is a push or pull that causes a stationary object or moving object to move. Next we made a list of things we WONDERED about. Finally we made balloon shooters from cups! We talked about how we put force onto the balloon by pulling it and the balloon pushes the block forward causing MOTION! They had so much fun!
French: Please see Mme. Stella for more information.
