Science Fair Check-In

On Monday, April 23, the students have their first Science Journal Check. ALL STUDENTS MUST have 3 pages of research. The three research pages should 1.) be from 3 different sources 2.) have five facts from each source 3) be written on the 3 pages of the back of their Science Journals. ALL WORK SHOULD BE DONE AT HOME AT THIS TIME. Students should have started their experiment and have completed the following: Question, hypothesis, materials & procedure. Display boards have been ordered and will be in soon. Students can still continue to work on their boards by typing up their information. I will also allow some class time to work on the boards. All display boards are the same size and white. Students may consider using fabric or butcher paper to cover their boards for appeal. Mid-Quarter Grades Mid-quarter grade reports are being sent home today. Please keep in mind that this includes the last couple of weeks during which MAP testing was taking place. Therefore, there arent a lot of grades in the gradebook. This can quickly lower your childs grades if they did poorly on one assignment. If you would like more detail regarding specific assignments, please check PowerSchool Parent Portal. There will be many opportunities over the next four weeks to raise grades in all subjects. The Science Fair project will be a large portion of their grade in Working With Words, Writing, Reading, and Science, so please make sure that they are keeping up with assignments and completing them in a timely manner.
