As school continues our students continue to express their passion for learning! This week both lower classrooms have introduced new unites for Geometry, Botany, History and Word Study. We have started to study the different types of roots on our Botany shelf. Vegetables like beets, celery, carrots and green onions were brought in for the students to observe different types of roots. Be sure to ask you student for an example of a fibrous root, or a tuberous root. On our history shelf, we are discussing and learning the Fundamentals Needs of Humans. 

In the study of Geometry, the third year students have been introduced to the second classification packet. This packet covers different types of lines; from straight lines to curved lines. Our second and first year students are learning about constructive triangles from the geometry shelf. This shelf will be open to help encourage students to build a multitude of others shapes from triangles. Those shapes could be, rectangles, parallelograms, polygons, and so much more! 

For Word study, students have been presented with nursery rhymes while exploring different childhood rhymes. Writer’s workshop has also begun and our students are working on small moment stories along with learning about narrative writing. We are also reviewing skills concerning writing mechanics, such as capitalization, punctuation, and sentence structure.
