STEM and Innovation At Laguna Road
            First grade got back into the STEM Lab this week and examined their plants we made in the first week. The students saw how a lack of water influences a plant’s growth by comparing two tomato plants, with one receiving water and one not over a two week period. We then moved into animals and what “tools” they have engineered over time to collect food. The students then researched carnivore, herbivore, and omnivore features and crafted life-like models of their specialized teeth. I was extremely impressed with how quickly everyone picked up the concepts and how true to life their replica jaws looked. Their ability to craft accurate models is a key skill that they will build upon for years and a strong foundation is essential to this.
Tech Corner
All 4th graders learn about California history and the different California regions. These fourth graders use green screen technology to take virtual visits to the different regions in our great state of California! This technology has made a great impact on students' learning!
Writing Workshop
Fourth Grade students are learning that writers of narratives come up with story ideas by focusing on emotions and the memories attached. In this lesson, Ms. Collins used emojis to creatively introduce the focus on emotions. As our students craft their narrative writing, look for them to use strong emotions and memories!
