We are just starting with our new units after many days off with snow. 3rd and 4th grade are working on a unit on Natural Disasters. 5th and 6th grade are working on a unit on Design. In the near future, the 5th and 6th graders will construct their own bridges with a set material given – more info to come later.
4th, 5th, and 6th grade are learning computer programming through a program called code.org If you have internet access at home, please be sure to ask them to show you how they are doing.
In addition, 5th and 6th grade are participating in the Stockmarket Game – see stockmarketgame.org They have been placed in teams and have been given an imaginary $100,000 to invest over a 10 week period. Please ask they to login and show your their team’s portfolio.
