Huge thank you to Mrs. Williams for sending me this link. We watched it this morning during a brain break. I like to think the kids felt inspired after having their brains packed in with new information.
It's internet safety time again. Mrs. H, the computer teacher, will be going through a presentation to help kids stay safe from online predators, cyber-bullying, and other techno-evils out there. This will take place during our next time in the computer lab.
The kids set up campsites somewhere in our classroom today. They did this to simulate the reasons different early Americans chose different places to live when they crossed over the Bering Strait. This was kind of a fun activity, and I think the kids acquired an understanding. We will follow up on this up tomorrow.
Make sure to study up for that big Spelling test tomorrow! It's a rough one, but hopefully we're getting into a good habit of studying at home like we are doing in the classroom.
We will also have a quiz tomorrow on vocabulary (country, opportunity, culture, refuge, education, symbol, employment, transition, immigration, and translate). This one is not too hard at all, and they won't even need to know how to spell these words. We've gone over these meanings again and again in class, so hopefully it won't be difficult.
In Math, we will be having a big TEST next week for my sixth grade math class. I will give out a study guide on Monday.
