WEDNESDAY, MAY 20, 2020

The day is here! Your official last day of 5th grade. We will have our End of the Year Celebration at 10:30 today during our last recess. I will email the link this morning.

You all should be very proud of yourselves. You have been amazing and persevered with your learning even when things were very different or a little difficult. I have enjoyed being your teacher this year, and am looking forward to seeing you down the hall in 6th grade!

If you are curious about the Tulip Test Garden, here is the map of the participants. When you find Arizona, you can click to see our garden! Or at least a flower from our garden. 

Yesterday a few of you shared something positive that had come out of the school shut down. Here are the Flipgrid videos! Continue Reading →

Brain Starter

This is a great problem! I’m sorry I never put this up for a challenge problem in class. It is called a Hailstone sequence. It is call this because the numbers go up and down. What is the rule? Leave your answer in the comments!

Science May Do Activities

Today, you can Think Like a Paleontologist and Design a Creature! We would have done a fun activity thinking like a paleontologist this week if we would have been in school, so I thought maybe you could give this activity a try.

This one is for you Tessa! You wanted to read Ada Twist Scientist all year. We did not get the chance, but here it is, being read from space!

MONDAY, MAY 18, 2020

The last week of school is here! It will look a little different this week. I will not be assigning new IXL skills or Galileo, but you may continue if you need to complete work. I will find activities for both math and science if you would like to participate.

Our plan is to do at least one fun activity a day using Teams or Zoom. Wednesday will be our final class celebration. It would have been early release for you, so we will start our call at 10:30. We will show an end of the year video with memories starting back in July! We will also announce the awards you voted on last Friday.

Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Classroom Activity 5: The Impact of Color

Welcome back to our fifth activity based on colors found in nature! Let’s recap what we have learned so far on our journey to make our own sidewalk stained‐glass drawing!

  • In our last video we learned all about the geometry of a circle, how to identify them, how they can be changed into a different shape, and how they fit nicely into Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture.
  • We created three different drawings of your favorite plant. A realistic drawing, a stylistic drawing, and a geometric drawing!
  • You and your family have learned how to take a nature image and abstract it completely through those three different drawings!

FIRST STEPS:

Watch the video. From the video, we’ll learn about the impact of color.

Next, select some colored markers and some tape and try the color exercise sheet The Impact of Color.

Colors Found in Nature

MATERIALS FOR ACTIVITY 5:

  • Your Nature inspiration image

  • Multiple copies of your Geometric drawing

  • Colored pencils, crayons, or markers

Now that we know about all patterns, shapes and colors, have a family discussion around how we think we can include colors into our geometric drawing.

Discuss with each other how we can make a pattern out of color and how different colors make us feel.

Frank Lloyd Wright loved red, so he put it on basically everything at Taliesin West!

Frank Lloyd Wright would love to experiment with light and color. Do the same with your new   geometric drawing!

Use multiple copies of your geometric drawing and color in patterns and use different colors to experiment. Your final colored geometric drawing should use the same colors found in your original plant picture.

Email me your final colored geometric drawing!

Next week will be our final activity to create your own work of sidewalk stained glass drawing.

See you in our last activity for the final project!

Have a good rest of your day!
