We had a bit of a bumpy week this week as a class. Students are choosing not to record their work and some are choosing not to do any work at all. Please take a moment to talk to your child about their responsibility to work while at school. We talk at length about how school is their job and I am here to help them grow academically. I am firm with the kids and I have high expectations for their work because I know they can all do amazing things. Their success is dependent upon the effort they put into it. We also talked a lot this week about the difference between Mrs.Homan being "mad" or "yelling" at them versus me using a firm voice and holding them accountable for their work. If you have questions about this please come and chat with me.
Last week we learned about Stellar Nucleosynthesis. This week we started our solar system projects and they are turning out lovely. Next week we will be wrapping up these projects and finalizing our Montessori peace value flag projects. You will be taking all of these lovely works home with you at your child's parent teacher conference. These conferences will be in October.
Quickly approaching is our next field trip to the Anchorage Museum. We will be learning more about space and experiencing the planetarium. Currently we are short on chaperones. We need at least one more chaperone to make this field trip happen. Are you available? We will be spending the majority of the day at the museum. This is a 9:30-2pm field trip.
Many of the kids have finished their personal timeline books and they are turning out great! These will be shared with you at conferences and will be kept at school to be used during the Celebrations of Life.
Have a great weekend and as always, let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for being such an amazing and support parent group!!
