Classroom Updates


Swimming – What a fabulous week of swimming 209 had! Students were so respectful during the
whole swimming experience and time at the YMCA. Students had a blast playing in the pool and many
students took the water safety course and had very impressive gains in their swimming ability.


Magic Tree House Research Project – The project continues! Students are wrapping up their
research stage by sorting their notes. Many students are now focusing on organizing those notes into
paragraphs. Students are working hard to create 6 different sections each containing a paragraph
and a picture to put on their poster.


Marble Roller Coasters – This week Ben brought marble roller coasters into our classroom for us to
explore and experiment with. Students were able to use foam as ramps and were challenged to make
a hill or loop be apart of their final product. All groups were successful and did a great job working
together. Thank you to Ben and his family for introducing this to us!


Friday Physics – We continue with our theme of gravity and balance – adding the idea of center of
gravity. Students started to explore different stations, learning about the center of gravity. We
will complete these stations during our next meeting!


Stamp Club – STAMPS CAME! Students who ordered stamps a couple weeks ago were thrilled to find
that their stamps had arrived and were ready for pick up!

Wednesday Math – Homework is due December 2.
Spelling – Our next spelling test will be December 3.
