Mrs. Lyon's Class

Week of 9/29-10/2

Welcome...

This week in social studies we are continuing to work on our region project that addresses the essential question: "Why do people choose to settle in a specific place?" Now that students have researched about each region, they will find out what type of business they own. Based on what they have learned about each region, they will choose a region to relocate their business to. Then, they will create an informative letter to communicate with their employees the benefits of moving to this new location. Students will have a quiz over vocabulary and interpreting maps on Wednesday. They received a review on Friday for the vocabulary words. We will be reviewing before the quiz using an electronic device, so they are allowed to bring a device on Wednesday.


In reading this week, we are determining main idea and details in various texts. The texts will have a similar theme: SPACE! In grammar, we are introducing subject/object pronouns. We will have our Unit 1 test this week, as well. We will take it in 2 parts; one part will be on Thursday, and the other part will be on Friday along with the spelling test.


In math this week, they will begin working on multiplying whole numbers and decimals.


In science, students are continuing to look at the physical properties of matter, including mass, solubility, density, magnetism, etc. They will get to use the triple beam balances and other tools to investigate these properties.
