Science

We will continue our study of Science Chapter 6, Electricity. We will be doing a packet page daily with a quiz on the following Tuesday. Students will keep the packet in their homework folder throughout the week so they can review it daily to prepare for the quiz. It will be essential that students study for the quiz. The quiz is not easy!

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

We will be reading the book by Barbara Robinson for the next two weeks. Our spelling and vocabulary words will be from the book. Spelling and Vocabulary are the same words, so students need to know how to spell the words as well as the definitions.

Spelling List
