Just a reminder that the second Tic Tac Toe is due MONDAY 12/16. The study guide was given in class today and students had the entire class period to work on it. At the end of class, I put the anser key on the projector. You can also check out the answer key below.
I have also had a lot of students ask for the resources we've been using in class to be posted on here. Many of the things we have been using for this objective cannot be posted online due to copyright issues. I have, though, attached a button to take you to a website about transpiration that we used this week along with the website guide. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Enjoy your weekend! :)
We will begin our study of photosynthesis, transpiration, and cellular respiration tomorrow. The presentation and guided notes that we will be using are attached. Feel free to review these tonight before we get started tomorrow or make sure to review them tomorrow evening to make sure your child is caught up. Thanks!
We are almost finished with our first objective in Growing and Flowing! Today we took some very random materials and created perfect flowers with them. Check out the pictures on my twitter account (click the bird on the top right corner of the screen)! For the Tic Tac Toe, I will be staying after school today until our fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings to try and get caught up on grading. Hopefully I will see ya'll there. If you do come, make sure to grab a ticket to make sure that we get 10% of your meal towards our school. I have had some students ask what vocabulary words need to be included in the next Tic Tac Toe project. Those words are: pollination, fertilization, photosynthesis, cellular respiration, transpiration, stomata, guard cell, anther, filament, nectar, ovary, petal, pistil, pollen, ovules, sepal, stamen, stigma and style.
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! :)
