Collins & Co. Room 204
Week 27 Update: March 14 - March 18th
This week was Safety Week at Greenbriar. We had a lock down drill and a severe weather drill. The students did a wonderful job of staying quiet and moving quickly to where they needed to go.
Mrs. Able sent the PARCC testing schedule via the lit serv. We will be starting these tests on the Monday that we return from Spring Break. In case you did not check that yet, it is as follows:
Monday, April 4th: 1:45-3:00
Tuesday, April 5th: 10:10-11:50 and 1:45-3:00
Wednesday, April 6th: 10:10-11:50 and 1:45-3:00
Thursday, April 7th: 10:10-11:50 and 1:45-3:00
Please note that the state requires each student to take all of the tests. If your child is absent for any reason, s/he will need to make up the test upon return.
Since we do not have school next Friday (Good Friday), we will NOT be introducing new Spelling and Vocabulary words.
Have a great weekend,
Next week, we will take each of these concepts to the next level and learn how to graph an equation. We will plan to take our Chapter 11 test on Wednesday and then have a fun day on Thursday!
Students also learned the first sign post for nonfiction reading. They found that nonfiction authors use signposts and signal words to let us know that something is changing, challenging, or confirming our thinking. We read about Planet 9 and a girl named Ghana who lives in Peshawar, Pakistan. They were able to make comparisons, and find contrasts to their own lives.
