Thank you for all the donations that made our Materials Sculptures possible! They loved planning, creating, rearranging, and sharing their works of art! It was a fun closing to our unit of study on Materials. We also created a class book in the computer lab, which your child will get to bring home to share soon.
We have continued learning about materials in Science! We experimented with wood and water, and worked as teams to try get a wood sample to float. We have also been studying different fabrics, where they come from, and how they are made.
We have been busy studying materials in our world! These scientists have studied wood and paper, recycled paper, made plywood and particle board, and observed how water interacts with paper. We will continue with more experiments this week. And of course, we record all of our learning in our Science Notebooks!
While I meet with small groups and working on reading and writing skills, the class is working on managing their own learning. They might be researching on Chromebooks, creating an art project, illustrating poems, working on the Smartboard, or working on vowel sounds. These stations change every couple weeks. They are working on helping each other and solving problems on their own during work time. We also share our learning when we are done. It is fun to see what they have worked on independently!
