What's Happening

ITS SPRING BREAK!!!  I wanted to help you keep your student busy while on Spring Break and help boost their grades for Math and Science.  Here are some fun activities you can help your student with and help them with their Science and Math grades. 

 

Science

Egg Drop

WHO:  Mrs. DeBock’s 4th Grade Science is having their second egg drop of the year!  

WHAT: is an egg drop:  Basically, the challenge is to create a container that will protect an egg from cracking or breaking from a high fall. You can make this as simple or complex as you want.

WHEN and WHERE:  During Science class on Tuesday March 27th we will test our egg drops.

WHY: to see if students were able to improve their designs from earlier this year.  If your child did not make an egg drop earlier this year, that is OK they can still design and build one this time.

Materials students CANNOT use:

Peanut butter or any food in a jar, drones, balloons, bubble wrap

This is not a required activity so students will not be graded on the egg drop, however students who do bring an egg drop will earn 50 extra credit points.  There will be required work

Need ideas on how to design and build an egg drop?  Just google egg drop and all kinds of neat ideas will come up.  

 

MATH

My Spring Break Activities

When students return to school after Spring Break, we will be studying tables, graphs and charts.  Please help your student track their daily activities while on Spring Break. Students who return their tracking sheets more than 90 percent completed will receive 100 extra credit points.

SCIENCE FAIR 

February 20th

All science fair entries must be at school on Tuesday February 20, 2018 no later than 2:00pm.  No late entries will be accepted.  This will allow for judging to begin at 3pm.

Registration for Science Fair will begin at 2:00pm in the cafeteria of the Okmulgee Primary School.

 

Presentation must be able to stand alone and explain the entire model or experiment depending on which category.

 

DO NOT put your childs name on the entry anywhere!  At registration, your child will be given a number to place on the display board to identify their entry.

 

Judging will be from 3pm to 5:30pm and is closed to all students and parents.

 

Doors will open for public viewing of all science fair exhibits at 5:30pm.  Winners will be announced at 6:30 pm and Science fair will close at 7:00pm.

 

Evaluation forms that the judges will use are shown on back of this flier so that students and parents know how the entries will be judged.

 

All judges are community volunteers who are gainfully employed in either Science or Educational fields to ensure the best evaluations possible.

 

 

Week of September 11-15

MATH

Adding and Subtracting Fractions

numerator  the top number of a fraction.  This number tells how many parts of a whole there are

denominator  the bottom number of a fraction.  This number tells how many parts the whole is divided into

When adding and subtracting fractions, the numerator is added but the denominator is not.  

2/5 +  2/5 = 4/5

4/8 – 3/8 = 1/8

 

SCIENCE

Energy Transfer

EGG DROP Friday September 15

students can make egg drops out of anything except peanut butter jars and flying drones.  Let your imagination run with this one.  Check out Youtube, there are lots and lots of egg drop ideas.

Students need to know these terms

Thermal Energy – type of kinetic that depends on movement of tiny particles

Nuclear Energy – potential energy that is stored in links between protons and neutrons of atoms and require a nuclear reaction to release the energy.

Chemical Energy – energy that is stored in links between atoms and molecules.  Only released by a chemical reaction such as heat or when our bodies digest food.

Sound Energy – sound is a type of energy produced by vibrations and travels on waves.

Light Enegy – energy is carried on waves.

Electrical Energy – energy that comes from movement of charged particles.

Conduction – the transfer of thermal energy between two objects that are touching.

Conductor – a material through which heat or electricity flows easily.

Convection – the transfer  of thermal energy by flowing gases or liquid, such as the rising of warm air from a heater.

Insulator – a material that slows or stops the flow of energy, such as thermal energy, electricity and sound.

Heat – the movement of thermal energy from a warmer object to a cooler object.

Radiation – the transfer of energy through space.

 

Week of August 14 – 18

MATH

Math basics in review

Adding and subtracting 2 and 3 digit numbers by regrouping. 

Sound difficult?  Do not let the terms scare you.  Basically we are adding by carrying and subtracting by borrowing 2 and 3 digit numbers.

Example:   Addition

          1

              32            2 + 9 = 11 carry the 1

               +19            1 + 3 + 1 = 5

             51

 

               Subtraction

          64   

-17      You cannot subtract 4 – 7 so you have to borrow  from the 6, so the 6 becomes a 5 and the 4 becomes 14

5 6 14

        -17          Now you subtract 14- 7 = 7 and 5-1 = 4 and the answer is  

           47

           

          Multiplication Facts

Students are reviewing and mastering multiplication facts.  This week, students are responsible for knowing their multiplication facts from 1 – 12 for their 2’s, 3’s, 4’s and 5’s.

 

Don’t be embarrassed if you ever have trouble with your child’s math or science homework.  I will be happy to meet with you in person or over the phone to explain it so that you can help your child.  I’ve got kids too and even though I am a teacher, there are times I need to relearn something also. 

 

SCIENCE

          This there is a Solar Eclipse on Monday August 21, 2017, this week we are learning about how and why eclipses happen.  This is perfect because students are also learning how to make their science journals, which are where they keep all of their class notes.  The information about the eclipses provides perfect note taking and classroom procedure learning opportunity.

Your child should now be able to explain to you what a solar eclipse is, how it happens and the different types of eclipses. 

Solar Eclipse – when the earth, moon and sun line up in a straight line which causes the sun to cast a shadow on the earth.  This eclipse is special because it is the first totality eclipse in 99 years.  Totality means complete darkness will occur for a few minutes!

Annular Eclipse - when the earth, moon and sun line up in a straight line which causes the sun to cast a shadow on the earth but complete totality does not happen.

Partial Eclipse - when the earth, moon and sun line up but not in a straight line which causes the sun to cast a smaller shadow on the earth.

 

Make sure you have signed the permission slip that was sent home this week so that your child may view the eclipse on Monday August 21, 2017 at 1:09 pm.
