The week of October 13- October 16th
Report cards are going home Wednesday, October, 14th. Please be on the look out for these from your students. We hope to dive into a semester with a great beginning for our students.
Language Arts- Mrs. Groomes
We are continuing our investigation of our Scope journal this week. We will read a play called "The Spider Curse" in which a young teenage girl is taught the art of tapestry by Athena, goddess of wisdom, war, and the arts. Students will then compare this play to an article about Lance Armstrong. We will take a comma pretest to determine areas of strength and weakness. Students will take a quiz on Friday which will cover the Latin root words "graph", "gram", "scrip", and "scrib". A Study Stack link can be found in Google Classroom for all vocabulary words. Please ensure your student is reading 20-30 minutes every night.
Social Studies- Mrs. Bense
This week we will be finishing up the Road to Revolution. Students will finish creating their Declaration of Independence Stamp, create a Time line of Key Events, and take a Vocabulary Quiz on Thursday and a test on Friday.
I have created a study stack titled Road to revolution for the students to study with. My username is Bense8. They also have the option to create a vocabulary study guide of their choice, (notecards, graphic organizer, etc.) to earn bonus points on the quiz.
Students will receive a study guide for the test on Wednesday that will be completed in class. They will also play Jeopardy on Thursday to reinforce what they have learned.
The textbook can be found at mystatehistory.com and the password is gamsh17.
