Updates for the Week of May 30

Hello familes,

Mother nature is putting on a beautiful display of weather for us. This week, first graders will learn how popsicles were invented from The Boy Who Invented the Popsicle. They will then type a response to a problem they would like to solve.

Second graders will begin their media biography project, with the focus on transferring notes and adding supporting pictures to Google Slide.

Third graders will continue to learn about places around the state of Michigan and The United States. The final product from their research will be a travel brochure they can share with you.

Have a wonderful week! 🙂

Updates for the Week of April 10, 2023

Hello families,

Spring has sprung! This week in media, 1st graders will be enjoying the story Ice Boy, about an ice cube who wants more out of life and bravely ventures off. We will focus on how his character changes in throughout the story before students draw and write about how they have changed this year.

April is poetry month. 2nd graders will be exploring acrostic poetry the next few media sessions before creating their own.

3rd graders will review digital citizenship skills for the next few sessions before taking their post test in a few weeks. Students will compare the pre/post test scores to evaluate their growth.

Have a wonderful week,

Updates For the Week of March 13, 2023

Hello families,

Our March weather continues to behave like a lion. Though the snowflakes look beautiful, I’ll be happy when I can finally put away the snow shovel.

This week in Media, students will continue to research information on animals and begin to transfer their notes onto Google slides. Next week, our focus will be to add pictures and learn how to format slides.

Have a wonderful week!
