For language jobs this week, first grade students reviewed contractions, practiced identifying the problem and solution of a story, reviewed homonyms, homophones, and homographs, and had more practice with past tense verbs. Second grade students reviewed contractions, practiced identifying story elements, reviewed homonyms, homophones, and homographs, and wrote sentences with pronouns. Third grade students, reviewed contractions, identified story elements, reviewed homophones, homographs, homonyms, and identified the subject and predicate of a sentence.
For math jobs this week, all students identified the parts of a circle in preparation for PI day. First grade students solved large subtraction problems, while second and third grade students solved problems involving all operations.
In science this week, students continued their study of invertebrates by exploring annelids (segmented worms). Students did various experiments with earthworms to see if they preferred light or dark, wet or dry areas, the top or bottom of the soil, and where they are the most sensitive to touch (head, middle, or tail). Students had a great time with these experiments! In history, students were given a powerpoint presentation about Women in Science and viewed several short videos highlighting the accomplishments of women like Jane Goodall, Mae Jemison, and Rachel Carson. Students will create posters highlighting the work of these amazing women for their follow up this week!
