As we finished up our planets informational books, Ms. Villwock recorded the students on a green screen and students said 2 of their favorite facts about their planet. We were hoping that the video would be done in time for the writing museum, but it unfortunately didn't get finished. Ms. Villwock has just shared the finished product and can be viewed here. (If you notice that your child is not in the video, it was because they were either absent the day of recording or because they did not finish their informational book in time.)
As we transitioned over to a new grade book system (Aspen) after Spring, there has been a huge learning curve and many technical difficulties on my end. I have started to slowly input grades in Aspen. You will be seeing a lot more in the upcoming week as I am inputting older assignments from the beginning of quarter 4. I am still trying to figure out how Aspen works, so please let me know if you don't see anything pop up. Thank you for your patience as we all transition to the new grade book system. If you don't know how to access Aspen to view grades, please contact Mr. Lin for help. You can call the office at 773-535-0040 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
May Event Survey from Student Council
Student council asks that you please fill out a survey about planning an upcoming May event. You can find the Google Form here.
Earlier in the week, I sent out two photos in assisting students in answering multiplication and division word problems. In class we have learned various strategies and the pictures go over the strategies taught. My apologies that pictures were sent as a file that could not be viewed by certain people. I have corrected the files and can be viewed here and here.
Here is an updated picture of the class' Array City!! Come up to the 2nd floor to check it out in person if you can! :)
