What's going on in class?
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry is the book we are currently reading. We will be using quotes from this book as evidence to support our argumentative writing toward the end of the unit. I encourage you to have conversations with your student about the book, injustice, and the "American Dream".
As always, safety will continue to be a priority in the classroom. This includes not only proper use of materials, but also listening and paying attention to directions.
This week in social studies, the students continued learning about Ancient Greece. The students learned more about Greek culture in the two countries of Athens and Sparta. On Wednesday and Thursday, the students learned about the Peloponnesian War, which was a war between Athens and Sparta. On Friday, the students began a research project on the website Pixton. They will get to choose a topic from Ancient Greece such as the Olympics, Greek Mythology, etc. Next week, the students will work on their projects and continue learning about Ancient Greece.

Students of the Week!
Please charge tablets every night. Many students are leaving tablets in their locker. If your family would prefer that the tablet stays at school, please contact your student's CAT time teacher to make arrangements for secure storage and charging.
