Academics!

Reading

Interactive timelines. The students have read a story about the development of the U.S. Constitution. In groups, the students will be assigned a time during this period. They have to identify the major role players, what they did, and how they accomplished it. Then, the students will create interview questions and use their iPads to capture the interviews. The students will be doing this in front of a green screen. They will work within the app to create a background suitable for their time. We will compile each group’s time periods to create a timeline. *Please discourage your child from wearing green to school this week as it will interfere with the recording process*


Math

We will be working on multiple digit division with 2 digit divisors. We are doing exact answers and estimation They will need to work with these problems with several types of methods.

Problem solving with multi-step problems and word problems with extra or missing information will also be work on during the next week.


Social Studies

We are starting 13 Colonies this week! We are going to be learning how to do a "close" read and take notes to make a summary into our own words. We will be reviewing what is and what is NOT plagiarism. As we will be doing more research soon on their American Hero reports, it is very important that students understand this concept!


Science

We are learning about the Sun, Moon, and Stars this week!
