We will also tie in our research standards and learn how to perform research about our chosen historical figure.
Over the next couple weeks, we will also learn all about affixes.We will do several activities to differentiate between prefixes, suffixes and root words. Our academic vocabulary for the two weeks: biography, autobiography, affix, historical events and conventions.
Wednesday--iStation on home computer or iPad

This week in Math
Thank you very much for providing the supplies for the gingerbread house project. The students had a great time creating them!
We are continuing to study adding and subtracting fractions. This week we will learn how to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators. To be successful adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, we need to be able to find a common denominator for the fractions and then rewrite the fractions using the common denominator.
Monday: Homework 7-5: Finding Common Denominators: pg. 353 & 354
Tuesday: Homework 7-6: Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators: pg. 359 & 360
Wednesday: Think Through Math: students will need to use either a computer or their iPads and should complete one lesson.
Thursday: no homework
Friday: no homework

This Week In Science
This week we will begin our study of landforms. By the end of the unit, the students will be able to recognize how landforms such as deltas, canyons, and sand dunes are the result of changes to Earth’s surface by wind, water, and ice.
Students will understand that wind, water, and ice can change Earth’s surface.
Students will learn that sand dunes form when wind-blown sand builds up. Deltas form when water-born sediments are deposited at the mouths of rivers.
Students will learn that canyons form when moving water cuts through the Earth’s surface.
What are some different forces that can change the Earth’s surface?
How can you describe and identify landforms like deltas, canyons, and sand dunes?
How is wind, water, or ice involved in the formation of these landforms?
