Weekly Updates

Mr. Comstock: Science

In Science we will begin our last topic Competition in Ecosystems. The final Science test of the year will be May 30-31.

Mrs. Elam: Reading and Mr. Robke: Language Arts

Reading: We are working on author’s perspective and purpose in a nonfiction text. Students will also be exploring the idea of heroes and how they connect across fiction and nonfiction texts. Book search projects, summarizing fiction worksheet, and author’s perspective pretest (if they scored well) will be found on Infinite Campus by the end of the week. If a student did not score well on the pretest, there will be additional lessons and practice before the grade will be entered for that learning goal. IF your student has not completed any of these assignments, you will notice it marked as “missing” in Infinite Campus.

Language Arts: Students will be using story structure, character development, and language techniques that we have learned to create our first narrative piece.

Mrs. Morrow: Resource LA/Reading

Reading: Students are wrapping up comparing/contrasting like texts. All grades will be updated by Monday, June 3rd.

Homework: All reading logs were due. 8-10 logs were required for this quarter.

Language Arts: Digital project over Figurative Language was due Wednesday, May 29th. Students may complete at home and email to Mrs. Morrow by Friday, May 31st.

Mrs. Ward: Social Studies

Students with missing assignments can turn these in for full credit. Also, students can retake tests to raise their grade as well. Please check in with your student to see what work they may have outstanding.

Mrs. White Math

We are moving on to Topic 12: Ratio Reasoning. Students are allowed to move at their own pace throughout this topic, completing at least one lesson each class. We will test next week. Please check Infinite Campus with your child to see if they are missing any assignments or need to complete any test retakes. Life ed or math class can be used to retake tests.
