As we come to the end of another week, once again my class really impressed me with their performance on the quizzes!
Math was again a review of place value but at a higher level. Monday will be the MAP test in math so I will jump into addition and subtraction on Tuesday. I have a feeling that it might be necessary to do adding and subtracting of much larger numbers, multi-step adding and subtracting, and even decimals if it comes down to them needing to be more challenged.
The weekly parent email was sent home. I have included a schedule of next week's special area classes since each week changes due to a six-day rotation. With that, each week will have one special class that the students do not go to.
In science, we continued the study of forces and motion by demonstrating how electricity can create motion. We made the world's simplest motor called a homopolar motor. It consists of a battery, a single wire, a screw, and a circular neodymium magnet. When the wire touches the magnet, it causes the screw to spin rapidly.
