Classroom Happenings

ELA- Mrs. Lowe

This week in ELA we continued with our read aloud, Orbiting Jupiter ,and continued to focus on strategies for close reading. We learned our next two signposts: memory moment and tough questions. We discussed examples and students had the opportunity to find examples within their own novels. They shared their examples and elaborated by making predictions and inferences to show their thinking via jots in their digital thinkbook..I wrote a jot about Orbiting Jupiter live with students to give them a clear picture of the writing expectation for their jots. We did our next grammar assignment (capitalization) and took a test on Friday over capitalization rules. Next week we will learn about our last two signposts and take the NWEA during class. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at

This week in science, we talked about density. Students learned about density in the real world and practiced finding density. Students used Gizmos to experiment with various objects and we ended the week with a quiz reviewing the information. If you ever have any questions, please email me at
