THIS WEEK IN SOCIAL STUDIES

Last week student began learning the Origins of Judaism and the 4 Hebrew Leaders. Students were given a choice of projects to complete, in order to explore this topic. Individually they could create an online comic over all four of the Hebrew Leaders. Or as a group they could write and perform a one act play on a Hebrew Leader of their choice. We expect our kids will outshine Charlton Heston!



Monday - Students will continue work on their presentations.

Tuesday - Final touches on projects.

Wednesday - Presentations on projects will begin.

Thursday - Finish presentations on the 4 Hebrew Leaders


Social Studies Tutoring is provided Mon-Thursday until 4:15 for any student needing help on a project, or an assignment.

This Week in ELA

We will be reading chapters 8 and 9 of The Watson's Go to Birmingham -- 1963. Vocabulary, summarizing, and character description are the focus this week as we read. We will work with reinforcing reading skills in guided reading, and begin learning how to compose a character analysis in writing. Grammar this week will focus on quotation marks, and transition words with punctuation.



Homework is reading 30 minutes per night or more recorded in the reading log, and any work not completed in class. For students using Google Classroom, you can check out your child's progress on assignments through the week by opening the classroom page. Thank you for all your support with improving reading through practice!
