Week 20

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Week
This week we learned about Martine Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks and Ruby Bridges.  Please ask your child about segregation and how they felt when they learned about it.  One of the books we read was called, "Martin's Big Words."  His big words were; peace, freedom, speeches, dream, kind, fairness, together, all.  We came up with our own big words.  I will create a class book of this project.  

Mystery Shape Skype
We are learning shapes right now.  This week some of us played a mystery shape game with Mrs. Cavin's class in Georgia via Skype.  We asked each other about shape attributes to guess a mystery shape.  Some questions that we asked them were:

  • Is it a 2D or 3D shape?
  • Does it have 6 sides and 6 corners?
  • Does it have one face?
  • How many edges does it have?
We will continue on with this activity next week so that more friends will have an opportunity to play this game.

Water Cycle
We did an evaporation experiment this week.  Please ask your child the answer to the question & how we figured it out!!  #littlescientists
