Grandparents / Someone Special Day

Our informational writing unit will culminate with a 'Wax Museum' presentation on Grandparents' day!

We Love Math!!!

We will continue reviewing Unit 9 on Monday and take our test on Tuesday.
Unit 10 highlights a return to geometry. It focuses primarily on reflections and the related topic of symmetry. I will also introduce formal operations with positive AND negative numbers.

ELA

Writing ~ We are working hard on the informative essay that accompanies the Famous Pennsylvanian project.
Reading ~ *We can determine the meanings of mythological words and phrases!

Social Studies

Now that we know where the Midwest states are located, we are going to start studying them more in depth. This week we will learn about the people, land, and climate of the U.S. Midwest region.

Science

We will continue learning about the relationships between living and nonliving components in the food webs that the students created.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms!!!!

I am blessed! I get to spend my weekend with these handsome boys. I hope you enjoy some family time on Sunday. :)
