JCMS Team 2 Newsletter
Week of October 14, 2019
What's going on in class?
This past week in Math, students reached the end of Module 1. We will complete the Module on Tuesday Oct. 22 with a quiz over Decimal, Fraction, and Percent. Module 2 we will work on fractions, the students will begin the module with a few days to review over fractions before we start our lessons. Have a great weekend!
Next week students will be starting the novel Hatchet in Language Arts. Please continue to ask your student about their weekly reading interests.
Nightly reading homework-
Studies have shown that reading just 20 minutes per day will expose students to over a million words per year. This will then likely improve school grades as well as increase state standardized test scores. Please check with your child be make sure they are doing their nightly reading homework and filling out the log that goes with it.
It’s hard to believe another week has gone by! This week we continued to learn about Ancient Egypt. The students completed an activity which had them build a mummy digitally. The students also began working on a research project about topic in Ancient Egypt of their choosing. These include Cleopatra, the Pyramids, the Sphinx, Mummies, and many more topics. Next week we will continue Ancient Egypt. I hope to see many of you at student led conferences next week!
