03/22/15 What we are Learning this Week!!

Here is what we will be learning in the upcoming week:


This week we will continue working on non-fiction texts. We will be focusing on informational texts related to the Civil War. We will be using these texts to learn, research, and make inferences.


This week we will be taking our Math MAP Test. We will be reviewing throughout the week from all we have learned this year. We will will also be starting our Geometry City Project. Students will be using their knowledge of geometry to help them plan a 2-D City that they will build into a 3-D City

Social Studies

We are continuing to work on the Civil War this week. Our focus is on what was imposed on slaves during their daily life.
