Need Help? Meet The SSHH
We are the SSHH (suspicously secret homework helpers).Our job is to secretly help you with your homework through letters. Here are our guidelines:
-We do not help you if you have not tried
-You must have tried three times before you contact us
-We will not do it for you, for example, if you don't know how to do your Greek and Latin root cards (which you should) we will not make them for you.
If you have followed these guidelines and still need to contact us, write your question to us in a anonymous letter and sign it with the code HSe67. Then give it to Miss Dowling and tell her it is for the homework helpers. After a few days you will get your response.
In our class, math is really fun we do different things in math and we have just changed our set up. We can hang out with our friends, be with different groups, and still learn math. In our class we are using strategies on how to divide with whole numbers. We are also subtracting and adding with fractions
In social studies, we are working on the Revolutionary War. We have worked on important documents that led to our independence. Some of the documents are: The Bill of Rights, The Constitution, and The Declaration of Independence.
Reading and Writing
We just finished working on figurative language and creating different kinds of poetry with figurative language. We wrote lots of different poems! Now we are starting plot mountains and learning about story structure in fiction stories. We also just started writing narratives using our plot mountains.
