Curriculum this Week:
Math- We will be reviewing all math topics from this school year. We will be working in groups to sort questions into operational groups, work out the problems, and then check the problems. At this point in the year, all math standards have been taught except for measurement with a focus on volume. This will be our focus the following week.
Social Studies- We will be focusing on the history of North Carolina this week. Students will use a livebinder to answer the following questions:
How was North Carolina established?
Why was North Carolina established?
How did people bring change to different areas in NC?
- How did events bring change to different areas in NC?
Science- This week in science, we will be focusing on designing, creating, and planting our container garden!
Writing- We will integrate our writing this week with our science. Students will be writing about their plan and persuading someone to choose their container garden.
Thank you Ms. Watts!
You will continue to see Ms. Watts around the school though, because she will be the new Instructional Assistant in Ms. Jones Kindergarten Class starting on Thursday!
Congratulations Ms. Watts!
Direct Feedback from our Students to the Microsoft Sway Team
Mr. Pratley also discussed that he would like to hear feedback from students. So, over the next few weeks we will have the exciting opportunity to share our feedback with the Sway team!
