We are now starting the second half of the waves unit, focusing on mostly on sound. We will also review heat transfer and seismic waves before wrapping up this unit. The test will be Wednesday, May 3rd. Students will have the option again to complete a project in lieu of taking the test. We will be discussing this in class next week, but if you'd like to get a sneak peak, check out the assignment below.

Welcome back from break! Hope everyone had a nice, relaxing week! Remember- the choice assessment is WEDNESDAY! Study guides and projects are due before the test. Students who complete the project will be assigned a time to present over the next week. There will be no answer key to this study guide given. Instead, students have the option to visit me for mini "review sessions" where I will review a topic and answer any questions they have about the study guide. ** I wanted to note that my entire 4th core refused these sessions today. No one "attended" a review session in that class. If your child is in my 4th core and is NOT doing a project, please chat with them about this decision.**
The choice assessment is back! This time, it is all presentation based. Students WILL get time to work on this in class- Monday and Tuesday when we get back from break. Projects are due the day of the test, and presentations will begin at random the day of the test if possible. Please make sure your child has any materials needed for their project AT SCHOOL when we return from break. If they come unprepared, they will be required to take the test. Students MUST work on the projects AT SCHOOL. They will only work on it for homework if it is not completed at school.
Extra help is available every Tuesday from 3:30-4:30. Please remember that you MUST fill out a permission form (below) and turn it in the day before in order to attend.
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
