This Week

Math 6: We just finished a quiz on geometry concepts. We will be working on negative numbers and reviewing fraction skills.

Math 5: The focus this week was rounding decimals. Examples were for money and Olympic times. A big thank you to all the parents who sent in yummy pies so we could join in the Global Celebration of Pi Day!

Language Arts: In reading, the students are finishing up inferencing. We will be working on finding a theme or life lesson in a passage as our next target skill. I've noticed improvement in the reading responses that the students have been turning in.

In writing, the students have been working on writing creative stories or narratives from a writing prompt. We've focused on elements that make a high quality story. Students have also been working on POOT responses, some of our students were selected as justices and have been working on taking a position or stance.

Science: Students finished presenting their projects and their study of Atoms and the Periodic Table of Elements. We will be starting a new unit next week, You and Your Body.

Social Studies: Next the students will engage in an overview of colonial professions, develop a colonial identity and select a colony they are from. This will serve as a base for their point of view when we study the American Revolution. They will be exposed to a variety of sources: primary, online and video.
