About The Week:
This week we learned all about dancers. The class learned that there are many different types of dance and that anyone can be a dancer. We tried out many different dance styles and added a dancer page to our job book. In Math we played a race to the top game where students had to combine two numbers and fill in the right numbered square. They had a lot of fun with this game. In language arts we focused on individual skill building. Some students were matching upper and lower case letters, some were identifying the beginning sounds in words, and others were working on building their oral vocabulary. In Science we focused on the sense of smell. We conducted an experiment were we made opinions on how things would smell based on looking at the item. Then we smelled each item and recorded our new answers. On Thursday we went to Mr. Tolley's senior music class to watch the students perform original songs they wrote in class. All of the songs were very impressive.The students were often quite surprised by how the different things smelled. Friday we ended the week by doing jump rope for healthy hearts. Students were taught lessons by fourth graders, watched a third grade jump rope routine, played jump rope games and participated in a one hour jump rope marathon. It was a lot of fun! I hope everyone has a good weekend! Checkout the slideshow below for a look at out week and the Special Events page for pictures from Thursday and Fridays events.
