We could use some more volunteers to walk with us to Target on the 15th. So far, we have one lucky volunteer. :)

Please bring all money raised by Thursday, December 11. Thank you.


Topics we will cover this week in Module 3 include:

  • Ordering Integers and Other Rational Numbers
  • Comparing Integers and Other Rational Numbers
  • Writing and Interpreting Inequality Statements Involving Rational Numbers
  • Absolute Value- Magnitude and Distance

Lightning Thief

We continue our novel, The Lightning Thief. We read Greek myths that follow the elements of mythology and highlight themes within these myths.


No more roots until 2015!

This Friday students can participate in a friendly Roots Competition to show off what they learned from our roots studies.


Each Monday your child will closely read and respond to a poem and then complete comprehension questions. Today's poem is "Being the Youngest" by Marie Devers.

Edmodo/ Response to Literature

Each day there will be an Edmodo assignment that pertains to language arts. Most often, the prompt is a response to literature.

Social Studies

Students complete their glogster projects. We hope to share these with you soon.

Students begin learning more about Greek gods mentioned within Lightning Thief. They will conduct research on their assigned god and present the information to the class in a brief speech.

Student Council

Student council representative speeches will be held tomorrow.
