Mr. Anderson - Language Arts
All of the students will take the STAR test next week, which will replace the Gates test as our reading assessment. Students will also practice identifying the elements of fiction with a plot diagram, and revising sentences for correct usage and mechanics, as I've seen a few slips this week with capitalization and punctuation. Please, remain diligent in monitoring your child's reading at home by reviewing and discussing their reading log with them whenever possible.
Mr. Cardone - Social Studies
On Friday, we completed our unit on Geography. On Tuesday students will have a quiz covering the geographic regions of North America and the bodies of water that shaped the United States. On Thursday, the Cartographer’s Challenge project is due and we will have a Kahoot review for the unit test, which will happen on Monday 10/5.
