Week Thirty-One (April 20-24)
Wow! What a week it has been. All the students did a great job at all three of their performances. They worked so hard and it showed. They sounded great!
We also had a blast and learned a lot on our field trip to the Civil War Museum in Kenosha today. Thanks to Foster's step-dad, Rick and Mrs. Zhang for coming along with us.
Please take a look at our "Things to Come". There are more events on our calendar, including PARCC information.

We started studying quadrilaterals. The students are discovering the differences between parallelograms, rhombi, and trapezoids. We watched a Math Antics and Think Central video that helped us learn the difference.
We also started learning about the different rules for angles for each one. We will continue this learning next week.
This website was created as a resource for you at home to go to look for ideas to help your students.
Here you can find the virtual text book, workbook pages, and online tutorials. The log in information is on the first page of your students assignment notebook. Find more information on our classroom website by clicking the "Math in Focus" link.

This week's Common Solider Interview was about the life of Union Soliders in the army and the hardships they endured.
We received more dispatches to learn about the information that took place in 1862.
We are enjoying learning about Civil War vocabulary by taking pictures to help us remember each new term.
The students also chose their "Archives" projects. They will research and put together their projects at home with minimal time at school for completion. These projects are due Friday, May 8th.
Next week is 1863 and we will focus on the Battle of Gettysburg.
