Zoomba got us pumped up for learning in first period today! After Zomba we had our goal setting evaluation and a basketball evaluation. In math, we learned how to add integers. One way to help remember whether the answer will be larger or smaller is to think of positive and negative integers as happiness or sadness. Use the guide to the left to help you! After singing and playing ukulele in music we finished the day off continuing our inquiry into electricity and magnetism by investigating series circuits.

- Dear Parents/Guardians,
Student led conferences will be held on March 7th and 8th. On both of these days your child will be dismissed at 2:00 pm. This is an opportunity for your child to share their work at school with you. Students will take you through their Fresh Grade portfolio and share some highlights of their learning. If you are not able to make it on either of those days, or if you would prefer, students will be able to conduct their conference at home. School conferences will be 15 minutes long. Please be aware that there will be multiple groups of students and parents in the classroom during each session.
- Please complete the survey to choose your preference for the student led conference.

3.) POST A RESPONSE:
- Today, you investigated different ways of making light bulbs work using different types of circuits.
- Click here and complete this online electrical challenge! Follow the instructions at the bottom of the link.
- After completing the challenge, answer this question: How does the brightness of the two lamps compare with the lamp on its own? What is your hypothesis for this?
- In addition to completing everything above, write about what you learned in Science today (at school and at home).
