Tuesday, students will be taking the Reading Benchmark Assessment. This gives us a great idea of where we are with our reading skills and how we are using our strategies for understanding of our reading!
This week, we will also be reading about Martin Luther King, Jr. and having great discussions. Also, we will be beginning our poetry unit.
Wednesday--iStation on home computer or iPad
Please also make sure your child is completing their 20 minutes of reading per day and completing the Reading Log.
This week in Math
We worked on adding and subtracting fractions last week, but I don't feel confident that the kids are where I would like them to be, so we are going to spend this next short week practicing the skill. Please review the three quick checks online I posted at www.pearsonrealize.com! If you child has trouble signing in, remind them that their log-in is their regular username with @lisd at the end. The password is abcd1234.
Our next unit will be adding and subtracting decimals. If time allows, we may touch on that at the end of the week!
Monday: No School
Tuesday: Daily TEKS Review 3-8 & 3-9
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 Alternative Energy Sources Unit. The kids will work to identify alternative energy resources such as wind, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, and biofuels.
I will understand that alternative energy resources rely on natural processes and can be used to produce renewable energy.
I will understand that alternative energy resources include wind, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, and biofuels.
I will understand that using alternative energy resources can sometimes produce less waste than producing energy from fossil fuels and can also help conserve the Earth’s resources.
What are some examples of alternative energy resources? How are they used?
Why are certain energy resources called “alternative” resources?
What are some of the advantages of these resources? Are there any disadvantages?
