Mr. Gephart's Room
There is a different feel in the classroom this year, but everyone is glad to be back instead of at home on their Chromebooks. They wont take a friend interaction for granted anymore. In lower reading, were reading Because of Winn-Dixie. Well see how a dog can impact someones life. In upper reading, were reading The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle. A teenage girl is accused of murder.
In grammar, we took a pre-test to see what everyone remembered from last year. We will then move on to prepositions.
In science, everyone is exploring states of matter. We had an experiment where we got to make bubbles with dry ice. We got to see sublimation in action!
In history, the lower grades are learning about United States history and the upper graders are learning about the Middle Ages.
In 4th and 5th grade math, theyre reviewing place values. The 6th and 7th graders are reviewing patterns and exponents and in 8th grade, were reviewing order if operations and how to classify real numbers.
The 1st semester I will have a student teacher in my classroom. Mr. Aaron Fischer will be here for 10 weeks as he practices his teaching and get some valuable experience.
