Week of February 4, 2019

What's going on in class?

Math

In math we continued on with Module 4. With the snow day on Thursday we were set back a day. We reviewed on Friday and our first quiz will on Monday 2/11/19. Please look at grades and missing work as it will be due on Friday!

Language Arts

Once again, students have been working on a variety of things!


The community service bake sale was a huge success! All third hour students helped out by baking treats, making signs, and/or showing their sales skills! Students were able to raise over $300 during this event. Students will soon be making decisions as to what they want to buy for the school with these funds. Great job to all students who participated and parents who helped out! Check out the pictures below!


The fourth hour class is currently working on care packages to send overseas for a deployed Fort Riley unit. If you would like to donate any items please send them to school with your student by Friday.


All students have been working diligently on their original hero's journey story. For the first time students have been introduced to dialogue and were then able to add it to the stories they had created. Next week we will be learning about illusions then we will go back and add that into the story as well. Ask your child about his/her story!


Upcoming:

1/12- Interim testing

Science

Team 2 Scientists completed their first stem challenge on a budget this week, as well as learned about mass movement (mudflows, creep, slumps and landslides). Students also had an opportunity to make test corrections for their Chapter 2 test today during class after they were done with their quiz. Next week is the end of the term, and we will have one more assessment grade, probably on Wednesday.

All missing work needs to be submitted as soon as possible, but no later than Friday.

Social Studies

Last week in social studies, we went over the Peloponnesian War and the four types of government in Ancient Greece. This week we will start off by making our group posters and then we will get into some fun stuff. We are going to talk about Greek Gods and Goddesses, and finish the week with Greek tragedies.
