Art MuseumFriday, March 20, 2015
On March 19th, we had the opportunity to visit the Cleveland Art Museum. It was one, awesome trip. The class was able to see many works of art including pieces from Cezanne, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Jackson Pollock. It was well worth the trip.

Communication StationsFriday, March 06, 2015
As part of our history unit, the students enjoyed visiting different communication stations around the classroom. They had to try to create an invitation to an imaginary game night using email, pencil and paper, quill pen and feather (which was really a paintbrush and watercolors), a printing press (ink and letter stamps), morse code, or carving hieroglyphics. They discovered that some forms of communication take much longer to produce than others. They also realized that changes in technology over time have allowed people to communicate more quickly and efficiently than in the past.

Updated Assessment Schedule for Third and Fourth Grade StudentsThursday, February 12, 2015
Please find below the updated testing schedule for third and fourth grade students. The most significant change is for third grade students as a change in state law now requires all third graders to take the spring Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) in reading. Third graders will not take the new state test in English/Language Arts this year.
This schedule is for the state assessments aligned to the learning standards in the core content areas of English/Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies. These new assessments have two parts:
• A performance-based assessment
• An end-of-year test
Solon students are taking the paper and pencil versions of these tests this year. Please note that these tests are given on multiple days, but the actual testing time per day is shorter than in the past with the OAAs. The testing window allowed by the state is short. It is important for your child to be in school on these days.
To measure students’ achievement and growth, the new tests assess deeper knowledge application skills as problem-solving, writing and critical thinking.

January News Tuesday, February 03, 2015
We had a lot of fun this January. We finished up our changes in motion unit in science. We learned about all sorts of contact and noncontact forces and their effects on objects. We also have continued reading and writing up a storm during our literacy block. In math we have moved on to adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers. We are almost 100 days smarter and it is showing.
