August Newsletter & Homework

Welcome to Mrs. Ellis’ class at Bowling Green! It has been a pure joy getting to know each one of these students and we are all excited for what the year has in store. So far we have been talking a lot about working as a team and experimenting with our behavior system: Class Dojo. We’ve also been using our GROWTH MINDSET to set goals for the year individually and as a class. Let me know if you have any questions as we get into the swing of back to school!

If you have not already, please connect on Class Dojo & Remind (code: ellisbg).

Here is a copy of the August newsletter that will be sent home in homework folders on Monday:

Here are copies of the students’ homework which will be given out on a weekly basis in case you need another copy:

Simple Machines Project DUE Jan 24th

As we are coming back from winter break, we will be starting our new unit in science on simple machines. One hands on way we incorporate learning about simple machines every year is by having students create a simple or compound machine. This project is to be completed at home and turned in Wednesday, Jan. 24th.

Attached are the project rubric and a study guide on simple machines.

Also, here is a link to some project ideas. Your machine can be as simple or complex as you’d like!
