What's Up in the Classroom?
Writing - We should be done with our poetry writing as of next Friday. We will be moving onto choice writing within all three of the benchmarks (informative/explanatory, narrative and persuasive). Students will have the opportunity to decide which type of writing they'd like to do and their purpose for it.
Math - We continue to learn about geometry and how it relates to the world around us. Students will be testing on this skill late next week or early the following week.
Science - Control systems has been the unit of study for science. Students are learning about the nervous system and all it does to make the body run.
21st Century Skills Assessment - We finished this test as of today. The students did a very nice job of taking their time and problem solving.
