We are currently focusing on Force & Motion. We are looking closely at how things move. We started by talking about motion which is the movement from one place to another or physical movement like twirling, waving, etc. Things move in certain ways- according to path and direction. The students have been completing a variety of experiments measuring distance and speed, as well as, force (the push or pull). We have also looked closely at friction and gravity and are currently discussing simple machines.
Our test will be February 28th. Here is the website that contains the flashcards of key vocabulary terms that you can work on at home (these were sent home 2 weeks ago): http://www.easynotecards.com/notecard_set/2524

After spending the majority of the day outside, we came back and enjoyed our Valentine’s Day Party. Thank you for your donations and assistance. We couldn’t have done it without you!
We had an amazing day. The kids were ready to rest on the bus ride home. As you can see we got our exercise after we learned about some Michigan animals. I was very proud of the kids today! Please leave a comment and let me know what you enjoyed the most about our trip?
Just a reminder to send your child to school with snow pants, gloves, boots, coat and hat. We will be leaving at 9 a.m. for the Outdoor Discovery Center. A sack lunch is also needed. Our party will be during the last hour of the day.
Our party will be from 2:20-3:20 on February 14th. Just a reminder, we will be on our field trip until approximately 1:30. We are in need of a few things to make our party a success. If you can donate, please let me know. Thank you in advance.
