Students were introduced to our Marketing unit next. We defined slogan, jingle, and logo and viewed lots of examples. Students formed their Marketing Firms and selected names. For homework they will read through the Marketing Bingo vocabulary terms and create a Bingo card so they're ready to play!
In our MOG (Moment of Genius) introduction, students shared who they consider to be a genius and why. Next groups analyzed different quotes about genius and created Tree Maps to classify genius characteristics and actions. We will complete part two of the quotes next week. Finally, we learned and practiced singing the MOG song! Ask your child about it and maybe he/she will sing it for you!
Our day ended with our first probability lesson. Students shared what they already know about probability first, then we watched a Brainpop video to learn more. We worked to understand the definition of theoretical probability, how to determine it, and how to find percentages. They did great! I introduced experimental probability and gave them a brief overview of where we'll pick up next week...flipping coins!
The only homework this week is the marketing mentioned above.
Please initial your child's "Check it out!" sheet each week. It should have her/his homework assignments written and should be located behind the "homework" tab.
And on a separate note, thanks SO MUCH to those of you that helped with the PTA Staff Treat Day today. I've never had so many delicious dishes with apples! It was a wonderful treat!
