A Peek at Our Week

Reading: We are continuing to read Mr. Popper's Penguins. We will read chapters 9-12 this week and will take a vocabulary test/Comprehension Test on Friday.


RTWC is assigned for homework tonight and Thursday night. Their job is to respond to the chapters from Mr. Popper's Penguins that we read in class.

They can choose to do their RTWC online or on paper.


MONOCHROMATIC ANIMAL PROJECT!! Please take note that we will begin this research project tomorrow. Students may choose to begin researching their animal at home. The project will be presented in a PowerPoint that can be done EITHER at home or at school. We will have time to research and make the PowerPoint at school so please do not stress.

If you would LIKE to work on it at home please feel free to.

This project will be DUE TUESDAY NOVEMBER 19TH. All students are responsible for turning it on that day. If they need to work on it at home to get it done then they need to do that.


Math:

We are continuing with geometry this week. Fun Fun FUN! This week we began learning about polygons, triangles, concave polygons, convex polygons, vertices, diagonals, and the names of different polygons.

We will finish this geometry topic by Friday and take a QUIZ ON FRIDAY that covers TOPIC 11 in the math text book.
