Energy is the name of the game in February for Ms. Grever’s Class. They have explored light, sound and heat energy. The students discussed each type of energy and then sorted them not only into their primary category, but then went further and delineated into man-made versus natural energy. Next time you’re in your kitchen - ask you students about the types of energy they see or hear - don’t forget the natural types! For the last week of February, Ms. Grever’s class will be learning about our solar system! They will also start to dig deeper and look at Earth from outer space, learn about the planets and of course astronauts! They read Otter In Space to figure out what an astronaut may need in outer space!
Ms. Rolinger’s Classes have been wor king on 3D shapes - in the pictures below they are exploring cubes - ask your child what sides, vertices, and edges are! In Science news, her classes have been learning about the weather. The have been discussing the attributes of weather, types of weather and what can affect or change the weather. In the pictures below they are learning about windsocks, and discussing how windsocks are used to learn more about the weather. This week their book is Beaver Hears and Echo. This is a story about a little beaver who wants a friend and starts crying and hears someone else crying. Not only does he learn what an echo (and so will your students), but he just happens to make some friends along the way :)
