Right now we’re studying sound in Science. Check out this interesting page on how to create your own water bottle xylophone. You can test it out online and play songs too!
The second week of school is well underway and Room 55 is fast becoming a community of learners. Students are becoming familiar with classroom procedures and curriculum. We will continue to work with the Journeys reading and Engage NY/Eureka Math, both Common Core State Standards aligned programs. New this year is the My World social studies program. Also, students will be immersed in collaborative learning and technology with the use of student iPads.
This website is here to provide resources for students and parents. I update it periodically so that it is relevant to our work in the classroom.
Please visit the Student Work page to see what Room 55 students have been up to.
I am pleased to announce that the 5th grade at Danebo has received a grant enabling both classes to participate in a Marine Discovery Boat Tour on the Yaquina Bay. The boat tour will take place on our field trip to the Oregon coast on May 15th. PTO has also agreed to pay for buses. This amazing news means that students will only be required to pay for admission to the Oregon Coast Aquarium and everything else is free! Please watch your student’s Tuesday folder for more information to come.
In Mrs. Deverell’s science class, we are learning about motion and design. In this unit, students are learning Isaac Newton’s three laws of motions, including how gravity and friction affect motion, as well as related vocabulary. Students are working in groups of 2-4 and experimenting with K’nex cars they built themselves. As they progress, they are keeping a Motion and Design Science Journal to show their results along with way. They are experiencing hands-on learning while enhancing their ability to work with others as a team.
