Mrs. Walkers Tiger Bites- Week of September 26th:

I am an Amelia Tiger!

Another wonderful week has gone by at Amelia Elementary.  It is always exciting to visit classrooms in order to interact with students and their learning.

  • Mrs. Smith’s KDG Class focused upon aReading Street lesson about the weekly concept of “How do we work and play together?”  Students discussed ways that they cooperate with others while at school.  Additionally, students used the interactive smart board in order to graph how they came to school that morning which reinforced the story selection for the week. 
  • Mr. MacFarland’s 4th grade class continued the theme focusing on observations in science.  Students began an experiment that will continue over several days.  Students had a “grow animal” placed in a water bottle.  Students wrote observations in their science journal.  They will continue to observe the changes over a period of time.
  • Mrs. Marcotte’s 4th grade class also worked upon a science lesson focusing on observations.  Students observed ice cubes with different colored food coloring melting.  Students made and documented observations every five minutes.  Do you have a hypothesis regarding the results?

 Kindergarten Schedule:  Tuesday/Thursday kindergarten students will attend school on Friday, September 30th.
