The Johnson Journal

Week of November 16th-20th

What are we Learning This Week?

In Science, we are continuing learning about Ecosystems by learning about Land Biomes. We will be having a vocabulary test on Friday, November 20th.


In Math, we are still working toward dividing 3 digit numbers by 2 digit numbers. Please help your chid with this, because it is a struggle for most of us!


In Reading, we are still reading The Watson's Go to Birmingham, finding main idea and details in informational text, thinking of point of view, and finishing stories in writing.

Important Information to Know

  • Grades are updated in Blackboard. Please take a look at these with your students. Each grade has a description of how and when we completed the assignment. There are also instructions if your student can either correct or turn their assignments in late.

  • We are working on a historical fiction book report that is due on Friday, December 11th. Ask your student to show you the book they chose to read, and to describe the assignment they are supposed to do!

  • Please help your child at home to practice their division. It is a real struggle in class, and any help they can have at home is greatly appreciated!

  • Thanksgiving Break is coming up next week. We will be in school on Monday, Tuesday will be an Early Release Day, and then we will be out on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
