Parents,

The Forces and Motion study guide will go home with students on Monday. On Tuesday, we will review answers and do a review game. The test will be Wednesday.


The students are busy creating a board game for the end of the year review for science. There are four groups. Each group will have a different subject: Forces and Motion, Ecosystems, Landforms, and Mixtures and Solutions. When each group is finished, the other groups will "play" the board games.

Our focus will be on reviewing science content to prepare for PASS testing. This week, students were placed in groups to create a board game that reviews Ecosystems, Landforms and Oceans, Mixtures and Solutions, and Force and Motion. I look forward to seeing what their creative minds come up with! :)

Then, the rest of this week we will focus on the Civil Rights Movement into current time. Together we will review the highlights of US History as we prepare for next week’s assessment. Each night this week, your child will have SS Homework and 20 minutes of silent reading.
