I have sent home a small social studies web quest. We have started our Ancient Egypt unit. Gone are the days of encyclopedias and a web quest in a good introduction to online research. I have talked to the students about advertisements embedded into websites that are there to distract us. The website I provided does have them and I want them to be able to identify the information we need. If you do not have access to the internet at home, please let me know and we will do it here at school.
We have been finding fractions of a set in math. For example, 1/3 of 27. We will begin equivalent fractions this week and then transition into decimals. Practice your math facts daily.
I tool part in an art professional development seminar. It was very fun and I will be showing the students what I learned. Our next project is in the style of Ted Harrison. Check out his website - http://tedharrison.com/
