This week was filled with STEAM Week activities and classroom projects! The students had to create a watercraft that would float for at least ten seconds while holding 25 pennies. The “Divergent Thinking Challenge” gave students the opportunity to create anything they wanted with a given set of materials. The children are also inventing their own math board games and they are working on a project about the book “The Secret Soldier.”
A fun week with extra fun activities! Yoga with Yoga For Good. A garden lesson with Groundwork Somerville. STEAM class with Kennedy Makerspace and popsicles on the playground to celebrate MCAS best effort. I hope everyone has a nice long weekend!
We continued editing to make our biography open responses stronger, and we practiced fractions to further our understanding. We even got outside a few times for some extra recess!
We had fun reviewing quadrilaterals using the geoboards in math. Plus, the MCAS may be over but we are busy completing our end of year assessments (Dibels and STAR) as well as our biography unit assessment.
We completed our math MCAS, earned some choice time, worked in some fun and relaxing centers with Ms. Tosches, and continued our biography writing. It was a busy week!
