MRS. AMICK'S NEWSLETTER
We are also working on pulling evidence to support our opinions from text. They read articles or books then explain how they think about the information they learned, then find evidence from the text to support their thinking. This is the step just before they learn to cite the text for research.
Our extended text is still Glory Be. Students have learned a lot about how life in the early 1960's was and we compare it to how life is now. They are learning about Civil Rights, Women's Sufferage, and segregation.
If your child has not learned the multiplication tables through 9, please work with them each night. There is a list in the front of each Agenda Book for reference.
Don't forget that I also shared a Kahoot.it, created by Andrew Zeng that closely follows the study guide. I mentioned that I did not see how I would find time to create a Susan B Anthony Kahoot.it, and Andrew said he would take care of it. The next evening, he shared his creation with me and after only a few changes, it was ready to publish to Classdojo. I really appreciate his help and am proud that he followed the directions and was able to help our class learn with his contribution. For those of you who do not know Andrew, he is a student in our class.
After taking the test on Monday, I will introduce the next American hero, Mary McLeod Bethune. We will spend next week learning about her and take the assessment on Friday.
The following week we will introduce and learn about Frederick Douglass. The assessment for Frederick Douglass will be the Friday before Thanksgiving Break.
The next unit for Science is Soil. My plan is to introduce soil the week we come back from Thanksgiving Break.
