Today we learned more about force, from a real scientist! After making a hypothesis, we experimented with gravity. We even learned that wind resistance is a type of friction what makes planes fly. Ask us about force, friction, or even inertia. We are becoming pros!
In order to celebrate International Dot Day, we read "The Dot," written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds. Afterwards, each student had the chance to make their own "mark." Ask your student, "Why did we read this book?"
Mr. Badynee stopped by our room today to share a story with us! He chose The Dentist from the Black Lagoon in honor of our class study of all the Black Lagoon books. It was great to see Mr. Badynee again after a long summer!
A special thanks to the Petrusonis family who brought in their favorite Black Lagoon titles from their local library to share with our class!
Today, we learned about the Circle of Control and how it helps us be proactive. Being Proactive is the first of the seven habits and a topic we will be discussing in the classroom a lot these next few weeks. When we focus on the pieces of our lives that our within our control and let go of the pieces out of our control, we will lead happier, more productive lives. We also enjoyed watching the first eighty seconds of the movie attached below to help us understand how silly it can seem when we focus on things outside our control! Please note that I have no copyrights to this film clip- thanks!!
Throughout the year, we will be studying the concept of life cycles. This week, we found the perfect tree to track throughout the year. We discussed what it means to make an observation and will be revisiting our tree to observe the changes it experiences within its life cycle. Feel free to write a comment
