Each student had specific jobs to complete to get it done. The boys put a base coat on the pumpkin, and while it dried, they worked on the forest setting. Then four different students painted blue for her dress. The girls made the hair, and the student-teacher put the blue glitter on. The students made the mouth out of modeling clay then glued the eyes and mouth on the pumpkin. Finally, each student that was a dwarf, made a little dwarf using a small apple with a hat, eyes, button nose, and cotton beard. The students did a great job with teamwork. #WeirExcellenceShines!

1st & 2nd Photo Collage: Mr. Snyder built this hand-crafted model gas station and shared it with the Math classes. The students learned that Mr. Snyder has an architect degree, and he built this model to scale. During his talk, the students learned many new math terms and recognized many shapes in the building. The building was from the late 40s early 50s, this gas station is still standing near his parent's home in western Oktibbeha County. In the 40s and 50s gas stations sold general merchandise, so residents didn't have to travel far to get supplies. The 2nd building is a model of a Log Cabin - it was made to model the old cabins people used to live in. Thank you, Mr. Snyder, for sharing and teaching us how Math and History go together. #WeirExcellenceShines

Thursday, May 21st: MATH Pre-K: Kindergarten: Adults are always saying you are full of energy. So, let’s burn some of that energy! Play skip counting hopscotch. Start out simply by labeling the blocks by 1s, 5s or 10s. 1st & 2nd: Grade: So, very proud of each of you. The light bulb was invented by Thomas Edison, a very famous scientist and inventor. The Edison Festival of Light is a large parade that happens in my hometown of Fort Myers, Florida each year. So, let’s see how many different light bulbs WATTS there are…. Here is a list of the different standard light bulb watts: 40 Watt, 60 Watt, 75 Watt, and 100 Watt. Halogen Light Watt 29 Watt, 43 Watt, 53 Watt, 72 Watt LED Light Watt 8 Watt, 13 Watt, 17 Watt, 20 Watt How much more watts are used in the largest standard light bulb than the smallest LED light bulb? How many watts would there be if you added the smallest light bulb in each category? How much more is the largest Halogen bulb watt than the largest LED light bulb watt? How much would the 60 watt standard lightbulb be than the 43 watt Halogen Light Bulb be? How much would all the watts be if you added all the LED wattage together? Make up some problems for your parents to solve and see if they get them right. Send me some picks and look up the Edison Pageant of Lights parade - I marched in that parade when I was in High School - back in the day. Have a great summer!!!! 3rd: I would like for you to research energy efficient home plans with an adult. Look at different house plans. Then use a piece of paper to create your own energy efficient house plan. Label your house plan with measurements then find the perimeter of each of the rooms in your house plan. Happy building!! 4th: I would like for you to research energy efficient home plans. Look at different house plans. Then use a piece of paper to create your own energy efficient house plan. Label your house plan with measurements then find the perimeter and area of each room in your house! Happy building! 5th: Blast Off! Newton's third law states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. On blast off, a rocket pushes the propellant out, and the propellant then pushes the rocket. The propellant comes out of the engine; this is the action. The rocket lifts off the launch pad in the opposite direction; this is the reaction. A balloon rocket is propelled by air. The greater the propellant, the greater the action and thus, the greater the reaction. Let’s experiment with different amounts of air and measure the distance the rocket travels. 1. You will need drinking straw, balloons (long works best), clear tape, fishing line or long string, tape measure or ruler. 2. Thread string through straw, tie one end to the back of a chair, blow up a balloon and tape to straw, pull string tight and keep tight until measuring how far your “rocket flew”. 3. Conduct several flights changing the number of breaths used to inflate balloons. Keep an Input and Output table showing the relationship between number of breaths and distance rocket traveled. Why do you think the results were what they are? 6th: Let’s see how we can problem solve with fractions, decimals and percents.We use more and more energy each and every day. We use it to make electricity, heat and fuel. It powers our laptops and TVs, gives us hot water and warm, comfy spaces, and helps transport us from one location to another.

Label your house plan with measurements then find the perimeter and area of each room in your house! Happy building! 5th: Blast Off! Newton's third law states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. On blast off, a rocket pushes the propellant out, and the propellant then pushes the rocket. The propellant comes out of the engine; this is the action. The rocket lifts off the launch pad in the opposite direction; this is the reaction. A balloon rocket is propelled by air. The greater the propellant, the greater the action and thus, the greater the reaction. Let’s experiment with different amounts of air and measure the distance the rocket travels. 1. You will need drinking straw, balloons (long works best), clear tape, fishing line or long string, tape measure or ruler. 2. Thread string through straw, tie one end to the back of a chair, blow up a balloon and tape to straw, pull string tight and keep tight until measuring how far your “rocket flew”. 3. Conduct several flights changing the number of breaths used to inflate balloons. Keep an Input and Output table showing the relationship between number of breaths and distance rocket traveled. Why do you think the results were what they are? 6th: Let’s see how we can problem solve with fractions, decimals and percents.We use more and more energy each and every day. We use it to make electricity, heat and fuel. It powers our laptops and TVs, gives us hot water and warm, comfy spaces, and helps transport us from one location to another.

Thursday, April 30: MATH Pre-K: Gather 20 blocks. Parents write the numbers 1-20 on them. Build a tower putting the blocks order from 1-20. Kindergarten: Greater Than/Less Than practice - here’s what you need: playing cards and a small piece of paper with a greater than/less than sign drawn on it (alligator mouth). Have a grown up draw two cards and lay them down and you use your alligator mouth (greater than/less than sign) down between the two cards. Remember that the alligator eats the biggest number. 1st: I will video these instructions in class dojo. Ok looks like the math theme this week will revolve around occupations and greater than and less than or greatest to least. Each player will need to have 2 dice, index cards (or pieces of paper cut up into card size), and strips of paper with different occupations (have your parent(s) write some jobs on a paper). To play the game you will have to wear the occupation strip around your forehead without knowing what it is. The pieces of paper or index card will have greatest, least, or greater than signs or less than signs. Pick who will be the first to go first by rolling one die - lowest number goes first. The person who goes first chooses the index cards that are face down and chooses a challenger (another player). Whoever wins gets to ask someone to give them a clue of what occupation they are - you can’t tell another player what they are. The game continues until someone figures out who they are then they win, but you can put on another occupation strip to see if you can get another one before the game is over. Or play until everyone guesses who they are. If you have no dice then you can use cards. Deal two cards to every player. Joker is the wild card - whatever number 0-9 that you want it to be. Ace adds 50 to the other number, King adds 30 to the other number, Queen adds 20 to the other number, Jack adds 10 to the other number. If you are ready to move to a 3-digit number (and we have been over this - use 3 dice instead of 2 dice; or three cards instead of two. 2nd: I will video these instructions in class dojo. Ok second grade, I would like for you to play the game above with 3 dice, or 3 cards or if you are brave enough and feel like you can tackle a 4-digit number go for it! 3rd: Use the Supervalue sale paper that comes in the mail. Pretend you are a clerk who is responsible for filling orders for pick up. Choose 4 items you would like to purchase yourself. Use addition to determine how much these items will be. The person picking up their order will pay with $50.00. Determine how much change you will need to give them once that have paid for their 4 items at pickup. Happy shopping!! 4th: You will also pretend you are a clerk who is responsible for filling orders for pick up at SuperValue. Use the sales paper that comes in the mail for Supervalue each week. Your customer will purchase 4 different items. However, they will purchase 3 of each of the items you choose. Once you determine the cost of their items, there will be 12 items in all, use multiplication to find your prices. Your customer will use $150.00 to pay for their items. Determine how much change you will need to give them. Happy shopping!! 5th: Find the salary for the Math Department Chair (the person in charge, responsible for managing the math department) of 5 different universities. Find the average (mean) by adding all the numbers and dividing the sum by 5-the number of salaries added. Order the salaries from greatest to least. Round each salary to the nearest ten thousand. Which university has the lowest salary and which has the greatest salary? 6th: Find the salary of the Math Department chair for 7 different major universities and round each to the nearest hundred thousand. Find the mean, median, interquartile range (IQR) and mean absolute deviation (MAD). Is there a mode? If so, what is it? #WeirExcellenceShines

Reading Pre-K: Name different jobs people can have. Identify the beginning sounds of each job. Kindergarten: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soKRa6D90WQ - This is the link to the read aloud Career Day on YouTube. Listen to the story with an adult or friend and talk about the different jobs people can have. Talk about what you want to be when you grow up. 1st & 2nd grade: If you have Internet, search an occupation (job) that you would like to have when you grow up. Read about this job (on EPIC or watch a read aloud book on youtube) and list 5 important things this person does on their job. If you don’t have Internet access, ask a grown up about a job and list 5 important things that person does. 3rd and 4th grade: Log onto EPIC and search for a non-fiction book that is about what you would like to do when you grow up. For example: If I wanted to be a nurse when I grow up, then I would type “nurse” into the search bar on EPIC and select the “non-fiction” button. Then, select which book that you want to read! 5th & 6th Grade: Log into Epic! and search for books on what you would like to be when you grow up! There are tons of books to choose from! #WeirExcellenceShines

Thursday, April 23: MATH Pre-K: Draw dots on flashcards or on a small piece of paper. Write a number on another flashcard or small piece of paper. Do this for numbers 0-20. Have students match dots to numbers. Kindergarten: Let’s work on patterns! Draw flowers and make patterns. For example: red flower, blue flower, green flower, red flower, blue flower, green flower. That’s an ABC pattern. See how many patterns you can make. 1st: Do you have flowers outside, maybe ones in a flower pot or small plants (not bushes). Let’s see how tall they are - using a pencil. See if you can find a plant that is just a pencil tall. Then tape two pencils together and see if you can find one 2 pencils tall. Maybe you have crayons - you can do the same thing... Let me know what you find Math Detectives - send me an email with your plant measurement photos, so we can post a picture on class dojo. 2nd: Using items from outside, like rocks or sticks and make something that is symmetrical on both sides like a butterfly, a person, or a flower (or whatever is in your imagination), and second, make something that is not symmetrical and tell your parents the difference between the two. Please send your photos of your artwork to my email, so we can share them on Class Dojo with your class. 3rd: Create your own bar graph using plants you find in your yard! Use a scale counting by 1’s. You should label your plants using yellow flowers, roses, white flowers, honey suckles, etc. You create your bar graph however you would like. Once you have completed your bar graph, write at least 3 questions that can be asked about the bar graph. You should be able to use your bar graph to answer the questions. I would love to see pictures of your completed bar graph and questions. You could send them to me through class dojo. 4th: Create your own line plot! Remember, “X MARKS THE SPOT ON THE LINE PLOT!!”. Go outside and pick 15 - 20 flowers in your yard. If you can’t find that many flowers, you can use sticks. Get creative. Use a ruler or a tape measure to measure each flower you pick to the nearest quarter inch! Place your data on a piece of paper and then use it to create your line plot! Once you’ve completed your line plot, write at least three questions about your line plot. Make sure you are able to use the line plot to answer the questions you write. I would love to see pictures of your completed line plot! You can send them to me on class dojo! 5th: Measurement Garden-You’ll need the following supplies-garden seed packets (4-5, if possible make one type Sunflowers), yarn, ruler, tape measure, scissors, small plastic bags, construction paper, glue stick/pen, and tape. Let’s get started- write the name of each plant and it’s height they will reach (look on the back of the packets) on a plastic bag and put a couple of the seeds inside of the bag. Measure a piece of string the size stated on each seed bag. Tape the string to the matching labeled plastic bag. Continue until all the plants have a bag. Tape your strings to the wall and make some paper crafts of each plant to put next to it. Do you notice anything about the size of the seed compared to its ending height? Take your final heights and do some measurement conversions. Change feet to inches and vice versa. Do the same type conversions using metric units. Did any of the plants have a higher/shorter height than you? If so by how much or less? Hope you enjoy it! Send pictures please. 6th: Measurement Garden-You’ll need the following supplies-garden seed packets (4-5, if possible make one type Sunflowers), yarn, ruler, tape measure, scissors, small plastic bags, construction paper, glue stick/pen, and tape. Let’s get started- write the name of each plant and it’s height they will reach (look on the back of the packets) on a plastic bag and put a couple of the seeds inside of the bag.

How do animals disperse seeds? Supplies: Sock(s), Tape (whatever you have), cottonballs, and something to measure with That was one way animals disperse seeds - can you think of another way? What about birds? How do they help plants? Have a great day!

FLU tip of the day😊: The flu virus is spread mainly by droplets made when someone with flu coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the nose or mouth of people standing nearby (yuck!). This is why it is very important to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze (we’ll talk about that in a few days). Symptoms of the flu include: fever (usually high), cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, and/or chills. Flu symptoms typically come on suddenly. Next week our focus will be on ways to prevent the flu and what to do if you get the flu☹ Have a great weekend and stay weather alert!

FLU tip of the day: The BEST way to protect you and your family from the flu is to get a yearly flu vaccine. Flu vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older. If you’ve not already gotten a flu vaccine, it’s not too late! You can get a flu shot from your local doctor, health department, and many pharmacies offer them as well. Protect yourself and your family. Get vaccinated! Stay tuned tomorrow as we discuss signs and symptoms of the flu and how it spreads from person to person.

Students at Weir Elementary School enjoyed a lesson on banking with Mrs. Lorie Deason from Cadence Bank in Starkville. Mrs. Deason discussed wants versus needs with the students. She worked through some scenarios about making wise choices about how to spend money. She ended her presentation by challenging students to make good choices throughout life, so they can be successful. Pictured are enthusiastic sixth-grade students and attentive third-grade students. We appreciate Mrs. Deason and Cadence Bank for their interest in our school and community.

Some students at Weir Elementary School completed applications and were selected to assist in the library based on excellent character traits, responsibility, and academic success. While in the library, helping, the student assistants enjoy reading with younger students. Reading with a child helps the child grow academically and gain confidence in his or her ability to achieve. Thanks for reading with the kids you know and love. Pictured are reading helpers: Jazzmyn Weaver and Hailey Mullins reading with pre-k students.
