Our Focus

Science  

Weather 

Our Focus:

What is weather?

How can we measure weather?


How do we prepare for different  types of weather?

K-PS3-2: Use tools and materials to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area.

K-PS3-1: Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface.

K-ESS3-2: Ask questions to obtain information about the purpose of weather forecasting to prepare for, and respond to severe weather.

 

CCD words:

forecasting  , meteorologist, effect, severe, tools, evaporationcondensation, precipitation

scientist, observe, predict, texture, investigate , inquire

Ask your child what the Signal Word or CCD Word is... 

This is the word that we use to signal movement around the room and outside...

The children will be asked to give their prediction to the word...then they will be asked to find the true meaning of the signal word and report where they found the meaning... (parent's will need to help!)

( Parents: Make sure you model the numbers first, you are working on making sure the numbers are facing the correct direction, so modeling is the key)

Something to Think About

 

luck-picture-with-quote.jpg

You gotta try your luck at least once a day, because you could be going around lucky all day and not even know it.

Jimmy Dean

Inspiration is one thing and you can't control it, but hard work is what keeps the ship moving. Good luck means, work hard. Keep up the good work.

Kevin Eubanks

I believe in luck and fate and I believe in karma, that the energy you put out in the world comes back to meet you.

Writing Skill:

* Work on the formation of upper and lower case letters

*Work on sounding out and writing the letter that matches the sound to make words

* Work on leaving finger space between to words

Start small and add on!
