Hello Families of Cluster 3


We hope this has been a smooth transition to our second phase of extended learning. We are thrilled with the participation of the students. The daily 10:00 zoom meeting has been a great success and we look forward to it every day. If you feel as though your student is overwhelmed or stressed with their work please do not hesitate to reach out to the cluster.


Routine has been proven to be very beneficial for our students. We would like to encourage our students to check their school email, and Google Classrooms every day.


Have a great weekend.

What will we be doing next week?

Math

Next week in math students will continue to think about equivalent algebraic expressions through work with patterns, combining like terms and the distributive property on Desmos. We will also start to think about when two equivalent algebraic expressions are connected by an equal sign and develop informal strategies for solving the value of the variable.


Ancient History

In Ancient History we will continue studying ancient China, taking a closer look at the dynasties as well as the religions and philosophies of the time.


English

In ELA next week, we will continue to work on our personal narrative writing unit. Classes will be evaluating student work and developing a list of strategies to use in our own writing as we prepare to emulate the model texts and polish a narrative of our own.


Science

Next week in science we will continue our study of energy. Classes will be focusing on the difference between kinetic and potential energy and the transfer of energy.
