We hit the ball out of PARCC on Monday!


This week in shared reading students focused on the meaning of three vocabulary words while listening to the text, Something Beautiful, by Sharon Dennis Wyeth. ​Our three vocabulary words were: skeptical, poverty, and phila​nthropist. As the week ended, the students connected how to use these words to generate a strong summary while also understanding the importance this lesson.

Math news..

Old friends started chapter 8 which focuses on fractions. This week students reviewed the concepts of: comparing fractions, adding and subtracting fractions, and multiplying fractions.

New friends spent the week preparing for their chapter 8 math tests on area and perimeter. They all worked hard on their test today and will begin chapter 9 next week. ​

Imagine, Write & Win

Our UMAC writers started drafting their equality poems for the poetry contest. It has been great watching the students use their creativity and schema to discuss an important historical topic. ​Everyone is showing their excitement about the CLPL Poetry Contest!
