Like words? Here is a site for you. There are all kind of word games for you courtesy of my colleague Mrs. Venosable at http://greatdaytolearn.com
I know you enjoyed our Bird ID program with Ms. Helena. I don’t want us to stop looking for birds around our everyday lives and trying to figure out what each bird is named. I found this great Audubon site.
This week, we are creating our Edmodo accounts. Each week you will have an assignment to answer and for those assignments you complete correctly, you can earn a badge.
It’s here again – the beginning of school. I hope you had fun this summer but you kept on learning and tried a few creative activities to spark your mind! I guess you may have noticed, I am moving back to 4th grade GATE. I enjoyed teaching 5th grade and having this same group of students for two years but I felt it was time to go back to my roots – 4th grade:)
It is going to be a great year. You are going to learn so much and I am going to learn so much along the way with you. I don’t know everything we will be learning this year as I try to take your interest in mind. I know a few things I enjoy learning along with you – life science – well, really any science at all. Because of donorschoose.org, we have owl pellets and frogs just ready to dissect. Sound like fun? Don’t forget – I also love to delve into mythology, especially Greek mythology. We can learn a lot about our civilization while learning about the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians. And of course, if you know anything about me, I LOVE technology. Technology really gives us a chance to be able to showcase what we have learned. Oh, I forgot. We will get to do a little birding this year, too. The Birmingham Audubon Society will be coming to see us and teaching us a lot about birds and this great hobby of birding and making us think like an ornithologist! If you have never used binoculars, you will get a chance to learn how to use them the correct way.
Who knows what else we will learn and do. It’s up to you! I know we have a trip to McWane and the Botanical Gardens.
Looking forward to another great year in GATE!
