Help Us Better Your Child's School...
We are trying to improve parent attendance for our school events. We created this survey to find out what we can do to help you be able to come to our events. Please take a minute to fill out this 3 question survey:
Language Arts- This week in Language Arts, we will be starting our DBQ. A DBQ is a Document Based Question. The students will be answering the question “Early Jamestown: Why Did So Many Colonist Die?” To answer the question, they will analyze several document, and then come up with their opinion based on the documents. In the end, they will write an essay to support their opinion. This will take a few weeks. This week we will be learning some of the background information and start looking at the documents. I am very excited about this DBQ. I really think the kids will enjoy it.
Math- As we swiftly travel through our Module 2, we are investigating strategies for the subtraction of decimals up to the thousandths place. Thursday we will take a summative on those subtraction strategies. We then will view ways to chart our information using bar graphs, dot plots, and stem and leaf plots. It is fun to gather data and display it in the appropriate chart or graph. PLEASE, be practicing multiplication facts with your child nightly if they do not know the facts to 12x12.
Science- Density, solubility, mixtures and solutions: will all be our studies this week. We will be doing some labs and reading about these topics to help prepare for the summative on Monday.
Please be aware of and help your child stay in compliance with the following dress code:
