Room 26 Weekly News
April 4, 2016
Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break!
Coming up this Friday, April 8 at 11:30 is our Geometry Scavenger Hunt. I need 6-7 more parent volunteers for about 1 hour (11:30-12:30) for this fun, hands-on math lesson. Please email me if you are available!!
We will be starting a novel study on Tuck Everlasting this week. Students will be meeting in small groups to discuss the novel over the next couple weeks. Students will also be continuing to work on Lexia (reading skills) and Wordly Wise (academic vocabulary) during our Reading block. This week's focus Language Arts skills will be conjunctions, affixes -SCOPE and AD-, and oxymorons.
We will also begin chapter 10 this week. As Americans, we have won our independence, but that leaves a whole new challenge: how will we govern ourselves. There were many different original state laws that will morph into the Constitution and Bill of Rights. I love teaching these things since it is a living document that we still honor today.
