Well well well December is finally upon us and as we prepare for another wonderful POP here’s how things are shaping up.
Language Arts: Worked on comparing and contrasting scientists. It was interesting to see students reactions to things they found in common.
German language class was a blast as we learned numbers and simple introductions, oh and of course we had to sing! Fun times…
Finally, we had a fun research project yesterday(see pics below) where students had to find an article in a current newspaper that reflected the contribution(s) of their scientist in today’s world. Lot of great responses and each student had to present to the class and have a short reflective Q and A.
Our biographies are coming along, keep up the great work!
In Theme we continued working on our Science Fair, CCA and independent projects – all work is coming along and thank you to all parents for supporting, encouraging and participating with (as needed) in the projects – the class has made a lot of headway since the beginning of the quarter!
Math time included work on math games (can’t wait til everyone can play them! – maybe we can have a school wide game time?), life cycle math, the Stock Market Game, checkbooks and Math Pentathlon.

On Wednesday our visiting guest teacher, Ms. Ruchi, talked about metric (SI) vs. customary (standard) measuring systems and did a couple fun activities with the class. As of this writing, we are very happy to announce that she will be our 3rd Delta class co-teacher and starts Monday, December 8th! Please join us in welcoming her to AHB!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
