News from Second Grade – Mrs. Wells

Students did a two day Bubbling Slime Lab in my science classes with Mrs. Prack.  They put the substances in a bag to set overnight.  Students came up with hypothesis on what they thought would happen the next day.  After working the slime in to baking soda to watch the chemical reaction, students recorded their results and wrote their conclusions.

News from Mrs. Barlow's 6th Grade Science Classroom

News from Mrs. Barlow’s 6th Grade Science Classroom!

Students from Mrs. Barlow’s Science class have been learning about mass, volume and density. On Friday, October 10, 2014 students were given a Butterfinger, Snickers and 3 Musketeers and they were asked to find out which fun-sized candy bar had the greatest density. Students put their measurement skills to the test by using triple-beam balances to find their mass, in grams, and finding the volume using rulers and water displacement. Students calculated that between the three candy bars, Butterfinger was the densest and 3 Musketeers was the least dense.   They had a great time doing this experiment and of course eating the candy!

News from Mrs. Mitchell's 4th Grade Social Studies Class

Mrs. Mitchell's 4th Grade Social Studies class has been learning about how the Ohio Constitution and the U.S. Constitution separate the major responsibilities of government among three branches.  On Thursday, September 25th, students acted out a reader's theater entitled "Who's Got the Power?"  Students were divided up into the executive branch, the legislative branch, the judicial branch, and the citizens to learn the major responsibilities of each group.    They were also learning the structural elements of drama, which includes characters, settings, descriptions, dialogue, and stage directions.  Students then went on to demonstrate their knowledge about the branches of government by creating tri-fold projects which are displayed in the fourth grade hallway.  The students did an excellent job and had fun acting out the branches of the U.S. Government!

Gretchen Hanahan's 3rd Grade Class

The amount of student engagement with the Word Journeys spelling program is phenomenal!  My third graders love the mix, fix, and spell game that they play every Wednesday.  This is a wonderful way to get my students motivated about learning their words.  As the year progresses, so will my students:)  Allowing for learning to be fun is what keeps them going!
