Miss Warnke: We will continue using a variety of reading strategies as we read chapter 13-epilogue from “Number the Stars”. We will be focusing on using context clue with Achieve3000. Students should continue reading a fun book at home each night.
Mrs. Allen: This week we are continuing our adventure through "The Cay". We are working on story elements, theme, and summarizing. We will also be brainstorming our ideas for the personal narrative writing piece.
Ms. Naze: We are reading Number the Stars and discussing the story in groups. Students are making predictions and inferences and writing discussion questions. They are also adopting words to be able to use in their writing. Students will be starting their personal narrative.
Math 4: This week we’ll be finding area of polygons on a coordinate grid. We will finish Unit 2, review and test this Friday.
Math 7, 8: This week we will be working with area and perimeter of triangles, trapezoids, and complex figures. We will have a test on Thursday to see how everything is going.
