Ms. Andrea Love Art and Gifted Educator
Our warm-up today that we shared on Google Classroom was the following:
More than 1 in 4 U.S. students say they have been bullied in school. Bullying can include teasing, excluding people from activities or groups, or even physical harm. Some studies suggest that the rates of bullying have gone down in recent years, but young people know that it is still a serious problem in American schools.
Bullying can be a difficult problem to solve. People who are bullied sometimes bully others, and adults aren’t always sure how to help. However, bystanders who speak up when they see someone else being bullied can make a huge difference.
With this in mind, consider this statement:
You can stop a bully if you stand up to them.
Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Explain your perspective.
6th graders have been hard at work on their CSFirst & Scratch coding unit. Most of them are either on or past Activity 5. There are 3 more activities that the students need to finish and branch off onto their very own design. I would like for the students to create their own coded story without the guided lessons. On December 11th, we will take part in the Pirate Plunder showcase. Students will showcase their coding work on the computers and I will print out some of their work to hang. Please stop by and view their hard work.
Students are also using half of their class time to research about their research project. Students are researching about what influenced them at the Anthropology Museum. They will also write about their research findings, create a model, drawing, and give a presentation with a slideshow or movie to the classroom. The students that will not be returning next semester need to have their research done by December 20th.
November 27th there will be a Gifted Parent Conference held in Columbia from 6-8pm. Students will be able to play chess, marble run and other games while parents enjoy the speaker. Please let me know if you are interested in attending.
As always, thank you for sharing your student in the TAG classroom. Please let me know if you need anything at all.
