Welcome back from spring break!
Thanks to all that came out to see the ISS fly over Hillside. It was a great turnout!
The science unit we are exploring right now is Space and Space Technology. We will be focusing on solar system basics, constellations, space exploration and space technology. Students will continue to participate in many STEM and other hands-on activities. The space probe models will be presented next week, May 1 and May 2. Following a test to end the space unit in two weeks, we will be moving into our final investigation on ecosystems and energy.
In ELA, students will be working in fantasy book clubs, and guided reading groups will be replaced with the fantasy book clubs. In writing, students will be creating their own fantasy piece. There is daily conferencing about their writing. There are grammar lessons, word study and character lessons done regularly each week.
