Kerkes Classroom News
Hello everyone, and welcome back to school! I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing summer.
Here is what is happening in our classroom the first three weeks:
Math: We will begin with place value, both with large numbers and decimals. This year
I am super excited about our flipped classroom! Our students will be doing their
lessons at home, using a website called Zearn. Then they will come in the next day
and we will go over their lesson set, answer questions, and do more practice
problems. Additionally we will have mathematical Socratic Seminars, play math
games, and continue our blended learning with ST math. It's going to be a great year!
Writing: This year we are trying a new approach in writing. We will be incorporating both science and
social studies content into our writing curriculum. That way we can connect all these important
Science: We will begin with water, weather, and natural resources, as well as mixtures and solutions.
Social Studies: Get ready for some exciting units in economics, native american culture, and the big history project.
