E-Learning Thursday May 28th

Good morning!

There is such great energy in our class this week! I really enjoyed our conversations around main character yesterday and absolutely LOVE how so many of you built using looseparts. The creativity is impressive! Today’s writing focus is on setting and I just know you are going to really enjoy the lesson. 

You have a 9am zoom session with Mr. Borgia and we have two small group sessions today, one at 10am and the other at 11am. Please be sure to attend one of them. The final zoom is library broadcast with Ms. Sorensen at 2:30. 

Planner’s ready? Let’s get started…

MATH: Creating A Bar Graph

Today you will be learning the components of a bar graph. Watch the lesson to learn all about how to create a complete bar graph. Then complete the workbook pages and read a graphing book on Epic. 


WRITING: Imaginative Narrative #6

Writers, today’s work is all about the setting of your fantasy story. From focusing on this lesson you will learn the many ways in which the setting is important. Use that understanding to build your setting and grow your thinking. 



Learn more about the Bronx and its cultural universals. The Bronx is very diverse with cultures and the neighborhoods are all so different.  Learn more about the landmarks that you can find in the Bronx.

On this day in 1935, Babe Ruth hit the 714th and final home run of his career at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh while playing for the Boston Braves against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Shortly afterward he announced his retirement. How did Babe Ruth get his nickname? Exactly how many records did he break? Which teams did he play for? Well, you can find all that out and more by reading this brief biography on George Herman Ruth Jr (that was his real name). 



If you weren’t able to tune into the SpaceX Launch yesterday, you’ll have another chance to watch it Saturday as it was sadly canceled due to bad weather. The rocket is launching from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 3:22 on Saturday.
