Alec is still not active yet for me. Tech is helping sort it out. Please look in your child's planner for the most up to date information. Please email me with any questions, my phone is not activated yet either. Sorry.

Our 2nd quarter theme is bullying and friendship. All classes will be reading novels both in class and as homework.
For the month of October, our focus will continue to be on story elements using a variety of fiction. Vocabulary List #3 will be introduced on 10/21.
Our writing focus will include sentence types and paragraph writing.
Students will be receiving the second poem of the year to be memorized. Recitations will begin in late November. The poem, "Invictus" can be accessed on my web page under the LA Documents Library link.

Ms. Baumann - Science
We are beginning our chemistry unit with the study of atoms, elements, and the periodic table. I am very excited for students to get involved in this more intensive unit. This chemistry unit will span all of second quarter and we will work through properties of matter, the periodic table, physical and chemical changes, and states of matter.
Many times chemistry is a challenge to students, as it is a new way of thinking. Students will be given vocabulary words and we will focus on more intensive, inquiry-based experiments that will allow students to grasp the content. Students should enjoy this unit with all that is involved in chemistry!
Mr. Hill - Social Studies
Last week was really spent getting to know each student and building a strong community within the classroom. These following weeks will be dedicated to learning the basics of geography. We will start with the 5 Themes of Geography and move into how to read maps. I am looking forward to a great year!!!
*Be sure students are taking home their books when needed and bringing them back to school the following day*
