News and Information from Mr. Yerington’s Classroom

Classroom News – December 11, 2006

Posted by iateacher on December 11, 2006

I really have to work on staying on top of my classroom news!  Never seems to be enough hours in the day!  Oh well, here’s what’s happening!

SCIENCE

Mrs. Martinez and I have made the collective decision to put away the FOSS kit for the time being for several reasons.  One, we are getting close to the winter break and we don’t want the unit to go past that and have the students forget everything we have talked about.  Two, the FOSS kit tends to focus more on the sense than the brain and we like to do more with the brain.  There are other reasons, but those are the two main ones.  So, we will be working on the brain up until winter break.  There will be a pig brain dissection on December 19th!!  There will be a final test on December 21.  Look for an upcoming post that will talk about items to study!

SOCIAL STUDIES

We are finishing up with the United States and Canada.  We are working on our last three sections of the book — at this point it looks like there will NOT be a test over Chapter 5, but only the section quizzes.  In January it looks like we will begin our study of Latin America.  Students will be turning in their blue books and receiving a red book in it’s place.  In January I will post the topics we will cover in that book!

Thanks

Mr. Yerington
