Week 23 with Mrs. Farley

February 24, 2019 by Kim Sorensen & Rebecca Farley

Even though we had short week last week, it was full of excitement! I was unable to attend the awards ceremony, but our amazing students really worked hard last semester! We celebrated Ag week last week with a reading from the High School FFA students of “John Deere, That’s Who” and walking outside to see of all the animal and equipment exhibits. Also, we had a visit from the Churchill County District Attorney’s office. Deputy District Attorney Chelsea Stanford presented a civics lesson through a mock trial of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” See pictures below…

I think the students really enjoyed the science experiments last week and learned a lot about the eye, diffusion, and reflection. This week we will continue to study our same eye/ light vocabulary words and take the vocabulary quiz this Thursday. We will learn how to transfer information with patterns (including Morse code) as well as the three forms of thermal energy transfer.

**This Thursday we will conduct a science experiment on thermal energy transfer. Please send a METAL spoon (cereal /teaspoon size) with your child on THURSDAY, it will be returned that afternoon. Please let me know if you are unable to provide a spoon, and I will take care of it 😉

The opinion masterpiece papers are coming along nicely. We will focus on organizing our paragraphs and strengthening our topic and concluding sentences this week. I will meet with students individually this week to revise their masterpieces, and hopefully begin typing their final draft this week.
