Visiting the Wellman-Scofield Library and History Museum

We went on a walking field trip to downtown Wellman. First, we went to the Wellman History Museum and learned more about the town's history.

Then we went to the Library. There was a contest for which class was the most responsible, respectful, and safe. Both third grades tied, but our name was drawn for the winner. Soooo, we will be visiting the library again for a movie and popcorn. :) 

Chess Champions!

We had over 50 students sign up for the chess tournament.
Kina and Kaden were the finalists for 4th and 5th grade brackets. Kina won!

Annette and Quinn were the finalists for 1st-3rd grade.
Annette won!!

Exploring in math

Today we investigated and explored relationships in math.

How to make 5 triangles from 9 straws...

 Sheep ratio to cows...

Making larger shapes from smaller shapes. How many triangles does it take to make a bigger triangle? The trapezoid was trickier for some. The hexagon was the most difficult. 

Informational Reports

We are writing ending our unit on informational reports. The students chose their topics of interest, found books and used websites to research, took notes, and then created informational reports. They had choice how to provide that information to the class. Some students chose to use a tri-fold poster board format, another wrote a book, some used their Google account to create a slide show.

 Madason chose Tigers....

Lilly wrote a book about Labs...

Annette presented information about birds...

After the presentations, the class provided feedback.

Social Studies

We are continuing to learn about communities. This unit focuses on celebrations. The students worked as a group to read the content and create a poster to teach the rest of the class. Tomorrow, they will read the posters to learn the content and complete questions to test for understanding.
