Week of November 12, 2019
What's going on in class?
This week in Math students worked on adding, subtracting and multiplying decimals. This module is shorter than the previous so we have about two weeks left of material before moving on into Module 3. Next week (Monday) will be our last quiz for module 2. After Thanksgiving break students will be completing the I-Ready test again. I will pass on the the exact dates once we have set them. Have a great weekend!
Library day is switched to Tuesday next week, please bring your library books so you can get some new reading material before break! We will resume reading Hatchet next week.
Nightly reading homework-
Studies have shown that reading just 20 minutes per day will expose students to over a million words per year. This will then likely improve school grades as well as increase state standardized test scores. Please check with your child be make sure they are doing their nightly reading homework and filling out the log that goes with it.
Students keep their Science Interactive Notebooks (INBs) and textbooks in the classroom, but they are always welcome to take them home with them as long as they return the next day.
It’s hard to believe another week has gone by! This week in social studies we started learning about Ancient India. We took a virtual field trip using Google Earth and began learning about the Geography of India. On Friday we took a short quiz and began learning about the caste system of India. Next week we will learn about Hinduism and Buddhism. We will also wrap up our unit about Ancient India. Have a great weekend!
Please charge tablets every night. Many students are leaving tablets in their locker. If your family would prefer that the tablet stays at school, please contact your student's CAT time teacher to make arrangements for secure storage and charging.
Students of the Week!
