Hello Parents, guardians and students:

I realized I haven’t posted anything in quite awhile, so I thought I better get on the ball.  Not only that, but there is A LOT of things coming up!!

Let’s start with this week.  On Wednesday, November 10 we will be dissecting our sheep eyes.  This activity is great for helping the students learn the parts of the eye.

Then, on Friday, November 12 we will be taking our final test over our cells, brain and eye unit.  The online practice test is already online on my web site.  Or, you can just click to access the test!

After the test we will be beginning our next unit on Levers and Pulleys. This is  FOSS Kit and has NO book.  However, students WILL be keeping a notebook that they can bring home anytime so you can see what they are working on and they can study.

We also have a very special event going on on Wednesday, November 17 and Friday, November 19.  We will be taking all of our sixth graders to see the “Springs, Sprockets and Pulleys” exhibit at the Muscatine Art Center.  We will be taking two groups each day (one in the morning and one in the afternoon).  The students will be told the week of the trip what group they will be in.

Wow, that’s a lot!!  As always, if you have questions please contact me anytime!

Thanks

Mr. Yerington
