We worked on our logical and critical thinking skills with a new type of logic puzzle, a sequencing activity, and a math Versatiles activities. The Station Rotation was jam-packed with lots of great learning and really hard work! Excellent job, kiddos!
We had an interesting transformation to stretch our originality and elaboration. The only rule, you couldn't make the squiggle into a roller coaster, too easy!
We got our new friends enrolled on Edmodo and worked on our first Edmodo assignment of the quarter: Write about a goal you'd like to work on and the steps you'll take to reach it.
Drum roll please... We'll be studying Medieval Times for this quarter! The kids knew for sure when "Lady Lobello of Cartersville" and "Lady Kraeger of Marietta" joined them in the classroom. The kids were beyond excited!
We'll be collaborating in Expert Groups to research 6 student-chosen topics about Medieval Times. This also goes along with our novel, The Whipping Boy. Groups will be doing research in class each week and preparing a project to share the information with the larger group.
The culmination of the unit will be a Medieval Feast at school. The kids will work together to plan this event which will include food, drink, games, music, limericks, and costumes (or some type of appropriate clothing-even a hat!). Look for more information about this soon. In the meantime, if you see anything cool that's Medieval related, grab it! :) If you have any ideas related to this feast, we'd love to hear about them.
