First Day

We had such a great first day! I was so happy with all the great behavior that I got to see today!  Hopefully the students had a great day too! I feel so blessed to be able to work with this sweet group of kids every day! I can already see that they are great thinkers!

Just in case the science project information didn't make it home, I've attached a copy to this page. The assignment for the first week is due on Friday. The students basically need to "look at something" and make some notes about it. The most tricky part is the "My Thoughts" box. This isn't intended to be an opinion of the topic; rather it should be more of your child's explanation of why things are the way they are. For example, my thoughts on a rocket launch is that there is some sort of chemical reaction that causes a rocket to shoot off. Do I know if that's correct? Nope, it is just what I made up to explain a rocket launch. The same is true for the students' projects. The thoughts aren't right or wrong - I'm just looking for your child's explanation of how things work. We'll be testing the rightness or wrongness throughout the process of experimenting, so it is 100% okay for their explanation to be incorrect. If you have any questions, let me know!

There are also a few students who haven't turned in their $2 for their reading binder. There is no rush, but I just wanted to put it out there for those that may have forgotten with all the first-day craziness!
