Science Light Test

Our current science unit focuses on light. This unit will last just over a week. This week your child was given flashcards to take home to study that include specific vocabulary words that we used already during the unit. They will see these words on the assessment. Our test will be on Wednesday, March 29th.

If your child wants to complete matching activities or quizzes on these words, Please visit this link: Light Notecards.

The children completed a variety of science experiments for our sound unit. This was a loud unit for the classrooms that were close to ours.  We were able to make horns and see how pitch changes with the length of the straw. We have been reviewing  the specific vocabulary terms for this unit. Your child should have brought home flashcards to practice last week. Our test will be on Friday, March 17.  An online quiz, matching game or printable flashcards can be viewed by clicking on the picture below:

If your child would like to visit websites that provide a review, as well as, allow them to experiment with sounds, instruments, pitch and vibration, click on the pictures below:

MSTEP Schedule

Please be aware of the MSTEP schedule when planning appointments for your child. All students are required to take all parts of the test. If they are absent during a testing period, they will have to take that portion of the test during the make-up time period. Unfortunately, that means they would be missing classroom lessons.
