*Please practice multiplication facts with your child. We are working towards mastering 80 facts in 2 minutes.
*Every student has an AM goal set of needing to achieve 9 scans this 9 weeks. For a scan to count students must obtain a percentage of 80% or higher.
This 9weeks we will be using the FOSS Sun, Moon, and Stars Module Kit. We'll start with the Sun and use a variety of tools to observe and record its position in the sky. To orient our observations, we'll use a compass. And to monitor the Sun, we will use our shadows. While use the language that the Sun rises in the east and sets in the west, we know that it really isn't the Sun moving but the rotation of Earth on its axis that makes it appear that the stationary Sun is moving across the sky. We will be studying the predictable pattern of the Sun as it travels across the sky during the day and during different seasons.
Then we will study the Moon. We will start as a class by observing the Moon during the day and follow that up with night-sky observations. Since we aren't in school at night, this mist be a homework assignment. As a bridge to what we have been studying in class, students will look for the Moon and other objects in the night sky when they are at home.
To make night-sky observations, take your child outside at about the same time each evening (when it's dark) and observe the sky.
All items circled or highlighted in student agendas are homework and items checked off were completed in class. Students should get their agendas signed every evening.
