Science – Gonzales

We used balance scales to do a weight investigation.

Science – Manning

We learned that one way to describe matter is by shape.  We learned that a 2-D shape is something you can’t pick up, like a picture in a book.  A 3-D shape is a shape you can pick up, like a cone, sphere, cube, and prism.

Spanish – Stanfield

To celebrate Fall we learned the word calabaza or pumpkin.  We learned a fun song about La calabaza and made a little booklet about word that describe a calabaza.  We learned the words flaca – skinny, grande – big, chica – small, anaranjada – orange, and grande – gorda – fat.

Next week we will set up an ofrenda or alter for The Day or the Dead or El Dia De Los Muertes.  If your child would like to bring a photo of a loved one or pet who has passed away, we will place it on the table in their honor.

Geography Day
