Wex if a fun way to write and it is fun because it it writing for fifteen min and once you finish you can do your one
Energy Labs are fun ways of learning different things for example you can learn about boring stuff ind cool ways. This works by getting instructions and doing the activity. Then at the end of the lesson you will usually be assigned a blog that is fun.
Thank you Mr. Solarz for E-portfolio Blogs. Instead of worksheets, tests, packets, etc, we do blogs! When we do something important at school, we make a blog and we include pictures, videos, and reflection questions. We have 1 week to do each blog that is assigned. We have to finish ever blog that is assigned by the end of each trimester. The blogs will go against our grade. Much better than the hard stuff!
PARCC practice is of course what it sounds like we practice for PARCC testing. We usually get a packet and work as a class to figure out the answers to problems. We also learn strategies of how to find out answers.
This lesson taught us that the leaves were different year round. To do the lesson we got some different leaves and when we looked it up we found the answers and why they did. I personally thought that this lesson was really valuable, and that Mr. Solarz taught it well to learn this lesson.
The PARCC tests are a new standardized test that is taken on paper, the tests are timed and they are not that long but it is a hard test to take. The PARCC tests are timed and they are taken twice in the year. They got moved in in place of the ISAT tests. I like the PARCC tests a little bit.
This is a slide show of some PARCC test pictures.
Human body is a thing that we learn about in 2nd trimester and you learn about the body
We read a book called "Wonder." It was about a boy named Auggie with Craniofacial differences. He was going to a new school and had a hard time with other kids. It was a fun book that we enjoyed as a class, and learned a bit about. It really made us think differently. It is really valuable to read because it teaches us a lesson about friendship.
During the first couple weeks of school we played grammar games. We had to practice our grammar in the beginning of the year so playing grammar games is very important and valuable. Also, by playing grammar games, we would get something because we would be learning various different strategies.
We earn degrees for sub days. When we have a sub for the hole day, than we get 15 degrees if we were perfect. If it was a half day and we were percfete
