More Magnetism

Friday started out badly for me when I managed to break the frames of my glasses. I apologize for no blog on Friday, but I needed to get to Larchmont Optimetric as soon as possible!

One of the things we did Friday was to finish some of our pointillist paintings. They were really good!

Today we corrected and discussed our math homework. We read chapter four of By the Great Horn Spoon!. We also worked on Science. The students worked in small groups as usual. They made electromagnets with different numbers of twists to see if more wire twisted around the steel core would improve the strength of the electromagnet. To nobody's surprise, it did. The students recorded the results of their experiments on a t-chart and then put those results in a bar graph.

After recess we went to the auditorium for some more play practice. After lunch, had physical education and the students took their math tests.

Homework:  (1) Write spelling words ten times each in cursive and write a sentence for each word. The words are latitude, horrendous, monotony, banshee, and impending. (2) Do the Great Horn Spoon worksheet over chapter four. (3) Do the Division and Fraction review sheets. Since today was the test, there is no assignment from the math book.

IMPORTANT:  Tomorrow is the fourth grade state writing test. Please make sure your child is here on time. They usually do not do well on makeups. Also, tomorrow is REGULAR schedule. The students will dismissed at 2:30, not 1:30.
