English Language Arts (ELA):

We will continue to study theme this week as we read a great story titled, “Juan Verdades, The Man Who Could Not Tell A Lie.”   We will also be responding to a TDA prompt this week.  I am so proud of my 4W scholars who have been doing a knock out job writing their two column notes, and digging deeper into the text for their evidence. Way to go!!!!!  We have also used our two column note taking skills for our personal narrative story.  This week we will draft our narratives together.  I cant’ wait to read their stories!

Math:

Chapter 11 (customary measurement) is an important, but challenging one.  We will continue to learn about customary units of measurement and practice converting the units.  Looking ahead, our chapter 11 math test is scheduled for Thursday, March 9th.

Science:

The students have done a great job discovering and building simple circuits (circuit=circle!) this past week.  This week the students will take their basic knowledge of circuits and expand it to series and parallel circuits and conductors vs. insulators.  Our test is scheduled for this Thursday, March 2nd.

Social Studies:

We will begin learning about Pennsylvania Government next week!  This chapter will culminate with our field trip in April!  Information will be coming home soon regarding our field trip, so stay tuned!

PM Grey Zone Voices

On Politics and Objectivity

In case you haven’t noticed, I am a very political person. Many have said that I have a lot of opinions on everything. I prefer to say that I’m always right. Neither is entirely correct, but I think one is more correct. This is because I don’t believe that politics are about opinions, at least, not the way people think they are.

If I believe in anything, it’s objectivity. Objectivity is important. That’s an opinion. Trickle down economics doesn’t work in shareholder capitalism. That is not an opinion. It is a statement that can either be true or false. In this case it is true, and we know this because it can be proven mathematically. Here is a study that does that. Here is an article explaining the study because no one wants to read all that.

“What if I don’t care that it doesn’t work because I don’t value an economic system that reduces income inequality?” asks Hypothetical Politician.

Well that actually is kind of a matter of opinion. I think you’re a jerk, but that’s not relevant. Go ahead and believe that. But don’t lie and say that people who don’t believe that should support you anyway.

The GOP has a history of exploiting and manipulating the working class into supporting policies that don’t benefit them. As of late, this has been through misinformation, such as implying that Obamacare and the ACA are different things (they are the exact same thing it just has two names). More insidiously, it is done by claiming that it is wrong to accept help. Many working class Americans believe this so much they support the destruction of systems that provide them with their basic medical needs. The idea that you shouldn’t accept hand outs that you haven’t worked for is deeply harmful to those in poverty, and wealthy Republicans take advantage of the uneducated poor by convincing them that the rich don’t owe society anything, but the poor owe society their lives.

What I am trying to articulate is that there is a distinction between a difference in values and a misrepresentation of facts. There are a lot of politicians out there that would very much like it if the general public couldn’t tell the difference. Donald Trump certainly would.

Actually, let’s talk about Trump’s dissemination of information. That which is not blatantly a lie is mostly word salad. Let me give you a direct quote: You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.”

The problem with this is that it’s difficult to call it a lie, because he didn’t say what happened. He didn’t say anything, really. He even “clarified” later that it was about something he’d heard on Fox News, so technically he wasn’t lying (although that’s one hell of a technicality). That doesn’t mean he wasn’t manipulating his supporters through misinformation.

When Hypothetical Trump Supporter hears this quote, they don’t think about the lack of facts. Their mind fills in the blanks as they go. They hear that something bad happened in Sweden as a result of the large number of refugees. Trump didn’t say that. If he had, he’d be lying. But he didn’t say it, he just implied it.

To be clear, the reason I’m talking about this lack of objectivity specifically as it applies to Republicans isn’t because of any liberal agenda. My agenda is for truth. I’m not saying Democrats don’t lie or manipulate. They do. One example of this might be DNC officials plotting to turn people against Bernie Sanders by drawing attention to his Jewishness or possible atheism. However, it is important to note that, firstly, they didn’t actually go through with it, and second, it’s not even remotely comparable to anything else I talked about.

That’s the point I’m trying to make: not every stance or action is comparable. There is objectivity. Some things are just false. If you want to have a debate based in fact, fine. If you want to have a debate based in philosophy, that’s also fine. But you can’t argue that facts are the same as opinions and then complain that no one is taking you seriously as an intellectual.

I’ll see you next week.

Labels!

If you have not sone so, please return your Race for Education Labels by Monday, Feb. 27!  We have not received as many labels as in years past and we desperately need them.  The money raised from the race funds so many great programs at our school and we can’t do it without your help.  Field trips, Fine Arts Day, assemblies, and PTO nights all help to make Hambright such a great school and we don’t want to lose them.  Even if you can only send in a few names, please do!  5 labels is better than none!  Thanks for your support of our PTO!

Labels (again)!

What’s that song? Ain’t too proud to beg…

Can you tell we’re really worried we don’t have enough labels? Please, please, please sit down with your child and fill out as many labels as possible. Go down your Christmas card list and send it to everyone on there! What’s the worst that happens – they throw the mailer away when they get it? What’s the best that can happen – the person you send the mailer to sends money for our school? It’s a win-win!

Without labels, we won’t be able to do cool things like have Hands-On House come next year. Please, please, please send as many labels as possible!!

If you need labels, please send me a note or email and I can send another sheet home.

Reminder –
Tomorrow is Super Hero Day – Your child is encouraged to wear Super Hero gear. Just like Kids at Work Day, it should be something your child can learn in for a whole day.

Labels are due MONDAY!

Tuesday is Spring Picture Day. Please return your child’s picture packet if you’d like to have their picture taken. You can send it back any time between now and Tuesday.

Never A Dull Moment

  • I tried to send this yesterday but had trouble uploading the photos. Enjoy!

Things got interesting this afternoon! First, we did a beautiful job of reading to our second grade buddies.

Then we worked on our energy projects. Our ideas are amazing, and range from making an energy website using html, creating reactive jewelry, writing plays, and more!

We then Skyped with our Minnesota partner classroom to see if our inferences about their mystery items were correct, and vice versa.

.

To top it all off, we went outside to read a very….interesting nonfiction article. What a day!

Pajama Day, Superhero Day and a Social Studies Poster!

Tomorrow OUR CLASS will be celebrating earning a another Saw party!  Students may wear pajamas and slippers to school.  Please make sure your child has sneakers for gym and that he or she can play in the pajamas he or she  wears.  We will not be changing clothes!

In your child’s home folder he or she has information on our Social Studies Culture Poster.  Please review it with your child.  Poster paper will be coming home tomorrow but if you have your own that is fine too!  There will not be a test in this unit.  The poster is the test!  It is due NEXT Thursday.
