Science

  • DO YOU THINK ABOUT “WHY”?  “WHY” DOES THAT WORK?

    “WHY” IS THIS HERE?

    “WHY” DOES THAT TURN CLOCKWISE?

    DO YOU QUESTION HOW THINGS WORK?

    DO YOU EVER WONDER WHY ANIMALS, PEOPLE OR PLANTS ARE MADE THE WAY THEY ARE?

    THAT’S GREAT! 

    THIS YEAR WE WILL EXPLORE NEW TOPICS AND ANSWER THE QUESTION WHY. 

    SCIENCE WILL BE FUN!!!!! 

     

    WE WILL CREATE PROJECTS, DO HANDS ON ACTIVITIES AND EXPLORE OUR WORLD. 

    WE WILL LEARN ABOUT SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY AND THE FORMULATION (OR CREATION) OF INVESTIGATIVE QUESTIONS. 

    WE WILL USE OUR SENSES TO EXPLORE OUR WORLD, MAKE OBSERVATIONS AND DRAW INFERENCES. 

    TO BE SCIENTISTS, WE NEED TO BE CREATIVE IN OUR METHODS AND PROCESSES AND IN OUR QUESTIONS AND EXPLORATIONS. 

    I CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED, WHAT ABOUT YOU?

     

    COME TO CLASS AND TELL ME HOW YOUR MOM USES SCIENCE EVERY DAY.  BE CREATIVE! 

     

Math

  •  MATH! 

    OH MY GOODNESS!! 

    HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY PEOPLE SAY THEY HAVE TO SOLVE A "MATH PROBLEM"? 

    LIKE MATH IS BAD OR SOMETHING, YOU KNOW? 

    WELL MATH?  IT ISN'T BAD! 

    IT'S FUN!!!!!!! 

    YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME?  THAT'S OK. 

    I WILL WORK ON CHANGING YOUR MIND. 

    AFTER ALL HOW CAN PLAYING GAMES NOT BE FUN? 

    YES, YOU HEARD ME - PLAYING GAMES!  PLAYING GAMES IN SCHOOL! 

    BUT WAIT! IT'S A SECRET! 

    DON'T TELL ANYBODY WE ARE HAVING FUN AND WE CALL IT LEARNING! 

    SHHHHH! HOW ABOUT THAT?!? 

    MATH? IT JUST HAS A BAD REPUTATION - THAT'S ALL. 

    SO LET'S GIVE MATH A CHANCE TO PROVE IT CAN BE FUN.

    (AND IT IS SOMETHING WE WILL USE EVERY DAY.)

    WE WILL HAVE GAMING CENTERS - YES, THATS RIGHT! THERE WILL BE ONE CENTER WHERE ALL YOU DO IS PLAY GAMES WHENEVER YOU ARE THERE.  DOES THIS SOUND BETTER YET?  HOW ABOUT WINNING AND PRIZES TOO?

    BUT TO WIN?  WELL, YOU'D BETTER KNOW YOUR TIMES TABLES.

    WE WILL PLAY WITH MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION, PLACE VALUE AND COORDINATES. (COORDINATES INVOLVES CANDY TOO!!!)

    SO LET’S HAVE SOME FUN. YOU JUST SIT BACK, PRACTICE YOUR MULTIPLICATION AND GET READY FOR THE BEST EXPERIENCE OF YOUR MATHEMATICAL LIVES.

     

    OH AND PARENTS, I DON’T WANT YOU TO MISS OUT ON ALL THE FUN SO...... WE WILL HAVE A MATH NIGHT JUST FOR YOU ON AUGUST 23.  THE TIME WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
