As we got ready for the STAAR test, lots of fun (and sometimes delicious) reviewing took place...
In February, we reviewed fractions, measurement and conversions while we baked cupcakes:
In March, we reviewed area and perimeter by making a zoo. I cannot for the life of me remember where I got this idea, but I know it was from Pinterest... Basically, my students designed an animal enclosure and had to solve for its area and perimeter. Then they got to color!
In April, WE TESTED...
After the STAAR test, we learned TONS of science! Here are a few of the topics we covered (and that I remembered to take pics of!).
-Moon Phases (with Oreos... YUM)
-Food Chains & Dissecting Owl Pellets
We also did a Science Fair project (which detergent worked best). Students broke into groups according to the detergent they thought would work best, stained some socks, washed them, and made boards to show the results. SO FUN!
I also managed to squeeze in some art lessons with my homeroom...
-Vincent Van Gogh
- Andy Warhol
That's not all we did, but that's most of it. This school year was AMAZING. My students worked their tails off yet we had tons of fun. I feel so privileged to have gotten to work with such a fabulous group of kiddos!! I already miss my babies!
