Homework update.

STATE PROJECT. Students are continuing to work on their state projects.  Everyone should have completed the state map and the first four pages of the packet (Quick State Facts, Products, Industry, and Famous People).  Friday, November 4 the next three pages are due (Tourist Attractions, Landmarks, and Big Cities).  By Monday, November 14 a short written report, picture, and cover will be due.  The short report should have four paragraphs:

Paragraph 1–Important Facts/History

Paragraph 2–Geography

Paragraph 3–Landmarks

Paragraph 4–Fun and Interesting Information

Students should also provide the sources for their information.

The students have been collecting information for the written report in library.  At a later date students will be creating a presentation using the green screen in the Kennedy Makerspace!  Ms. Labaire and I will be working with Lesley University for this exciting project.

A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP. Students are logging when they go to bed and when they wake up to calculate the total number of hours and minutes slept each night.  They are also recording their observations about how they are feeling and why they think they are feeling that way.  After a week of recording their data, students will make conclusions based on their sleep record and observations. The entire packet, including the comprehension questions, is due Wednesday, November 2.

Also, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @mrstremonte.  I make a weekly post about our classroom happenings.  If you don’t have an Instagram account it is really easy to sign up!

 

Makerspace.

Our students were able to visit the Kennedy School Makerspace/Innovation Lab today for the first time.  Read more about the Makerspace, which was launched in partnership with Lesley University, by clicking here. The students were divided into four groups and each group was able to visit two out of four stations.  Every student was engaged and excited.  When we left their first question was, “Can we go back tomorrow?”  Success!
