We are Ms. Benson and Ms. Fike, the BLOCK teachers from UW- Eau Claire that have been working in your student's classroom for the past two weeks. We have been working with Mrs. Dachel and Mrs. Bowe to create lessons in math, science, reading, language arts, and social studies. Ms. Benson has even been teaching some daily American Sign Language!
We have been enjoying our time at St. Peters immensely and have been having so much fun teaching various lessons. In science, we have been exploring the cell and its different functions. For reading, the 6th graders learned how to compare and contrast using Venn Diagrams. In 5th grade language arts, students are learning about direct quotations and their punctuation. 6th grade math has been working on ratios and rates. Ms. Benson has been teaching the beginnings of ASL, such as the alphabet, numbers, and other common signs!
In the next coming weeks, we will begin our social studies unit, exploring ancient Egypt and the Nile Valley. The 5th graders will also begin learning how to multiply decimals in math.
We appreciate the opportunity to work with the students and teachers at St. Peters, we are learning so much! We hope you have a safe Thanksgiving break, we are looking forward to coming back!
Ms. Benson & Ms. Fike
