Red Team Weekly Update
Week of 2/22-2/26
ELA- Mr. Jones
This week, we finished the Non-Fiction Unit by completing the summative in which students gave a presentation either through a video or Google Slides with audio about the Non-Fiction book they read throughout the unit.
We also completed a pre-assessment for our upcoming unit, Argument Writing, which we will begin next week.
If your student is absent from any ELA Zoom class sessions, be sure to check Canvas for that day’s lesson and/or assignment. It would be beneficial to look in both the Modules and in the Announcements for that date to find either the lesson, the assignment, or BOTH.
Science- Mrs. Creath
We have started our unit on body systems by learning about the circulatory system. I think the kids are enjoying it. We will be learning about the following body systems during this unit: muscular, skeletal, nervous, digestive, and excretory.
Students took an open-notes quiz on Friday over the circulatory system. We will be learning about the muscular system next.
If any of you have any expertise in human body systems and would like to speak to or answer questions for any of my classes, just let me know!
Also, please check your student’s grades in the SIS portal and let me know if you have questions.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email or (firstname.lastname@example.org) call me (314-527-3173).
Social Studies- Mr. Cahn
This week we have gotten into our new unit on Protest & Change. We have been focusing primarily on the lead up to and beginning of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States.
Students have learned about the 14th Amendment, important court cases, resistance to segregation, and the early successes of the Movement.
Next week we will learn about differing approaches of major figures of the Movement, major legislation, and more.
Please let us know if you need anything or your child is having any issues with technology or their assignments. We are here to help!
